Abstract: Pemphigus is a chronic epidermal immunobullous disease with potentially fatal outcomes. Among the many types of pemphigus, pemphigus vegetans (Pveg) is a rare (<5%) variant. We herein report a rare case of pemphigus vegetans presenting as multiple painful fluid filled lesions, pustules and erosions which needs documentation due to its extensive involvement. By ensuring accurate diagnosis and adherence to treatment regime a good prognosis can be achieved. This case report highlights the rarity of clinical presentation and need for early diagnosis to reduce morbidity associated with the disease.
