Pemphigus Erythematous, also called Senear-Usher Syndrome, is a rare blistering disease that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Pemphigus Erythematous typically presents as scaly red plaques that may resemble Lupus Erythematous hence the name. Occasionally, these plaques may develop bullae (blisters). The face is the most common area affected but lesions may also occur on the scalp, chest and extremities. The etiology is autoimmune and treatment is with immunosuppression such as prednisione.
