Clinical and immunological profile of umbilical involvement in pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus

Background.  Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF) are autoimmune vesicobullous disorders with IgG autoantibodies directed against desmoglein (Dsg)1 and 3, which lead to intraepidermal acantholysis. Aim.  To characterize the clinical and immunological profile of patients with PF or PV with umbilical
