Abstract

We report a case of pemphigus foliaceus caused by nifedipine. In this case casual rechallenge with nifedipine confirmed that this drug was the causative agent. The skin lesions cleared quickly after withdrawal of the drug and treatment with a short course of oral steroids. To our knowledge, this is the first reported patient with nifedipine-induced pemphigus.
