Title REVIEW ON USE OF PLASMAPHERESIS IN FOGOSELVAGEM
Authors Kiron S.S, Arun Shirwaikar, Yogala C.K, Saritha M
Description Fogoselvagem (pemphigus foliaceus) is an endemic form of pemphigus foliaceus and was formerly known as Brazilian pemphigus foliaceus because it was originally observed in specific river valleys of rural Brazil. Plasmapheresis is a therapeutic option in patients with recalcitrant disease. It may decrease autoantibody titers in some patients and favourably influence the clinical outcome, especially in patients with otherwise therapy-resistant pemphigus foliaceus.<br />
