Abstract Total excision and grafting of the affected axillae of a patient with familial benign chronic pemphigus (Hailey-Hailey) was followed by complete local freedom from the disease in the axillae for over four years. The groin serving as a control area continued to be a site of active pemphigus lesions throughout this entire period. References 1.
