Table 1: Patient and biopsy characteristics
Biopsies from patients with pemphigus foliaceus, mucosal pemphigus vulgaris, mucocutaneous pemphigus vulgaris and staphylococcus scaled skin syndrome. ELISA index values of anti-Dsg1 and anti-Dsg3 antibodies were measured at the time of taking the biopsy . Biopsies were considered non-lesional if taken from an area of seemingly healthy skin were no blister could be induced, or Nikolsky positive if taken from an area where a blister could be induced by rubbing, and lesional if a blister was present.
