Childhood pemphigus is a rare diasease and comprises only a minority of immunobullous diseases seen in children. Almost all variants of pemphigus in childhood have been described in literature. Pemphigus vulagaris is the most common type seen, after excluding endemic foliaceus. The clinical features are essentially similar to that of adults. Special consideration is required while treating children so as to use drugs which are less carcinogenic and do not affect fertility. We present here a review of cases of childhood pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus foliaceus, pemphigus vegetans, pemphigus erythematosus, paraneoplastic pemphigus, IgA pemphigus and neonatal pemphigus.
