Understanding Pemphigus: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A man in Turkey has been diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare autoimmune disease, after recovering from Covid-19. Ibrahim Akan, 38, developed wounds on his face and body after battling the virus in 2021. It was found that due to the pemphigus disease, his whole body was covered with wounds. Pemphigus is a rare autoimmune disease that causes blisters on the skin and mucosal membranes. The body’s immune system mistakenly targets the connections between cells that hold the upper layers of skin together, causing blisters and erosions to form. Although there is no definitive data for Turkey, it is estimated that roughly 2-3 out of 1 million people develop this disease. It occurs equally frequently in men and women and is most common in middle-aged people. While there is no definitive cure for pemphigus, it is usually treated with corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive medications. The case of Ibrahim Akan serves as a reminder of the need for continued research and understanding of rare autoimmune diseases like pemphigus.
