Although rare, oral pemphigus vulgaris must be considered in those patients who have a prolonged history of oral lesions. The fact that chronic oral lesions characteristically precede skin changes in pemphigus emphasizes the importance of this disease to the dental profession. Patients with long-term and recurrent vesiculoulcerative oral lesions should undergo biopsy examination to establish the diagnosis. The dentist and the physician must collaborate to establish an appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic plan for the management of these patients.
