Resumen

Endemic pemphigus foliaceus (EPF) in an autoinmune skin disease present in areas of the Amazonia. We report a 36 year-old woman who presented EPF at 17 weeks of pregnancy. At 29 weeks, she started antimicrobial treatment and steroids. At the moment of delivery, the disease was in remission and cutaneous lesions were not seen in the neonate. Indirect immunofluorescence titers of total IgG in the mother and in the neonate were negative. Sixteen months later, IgG titers in the offspring were 1/20 and remained negative in the mother, who was on low doses of oral corticosteroids.
