Özet

Esophageal involvement of pemphigus vulgaris (PV) had been considered an exceptional event. We present the case of a woman with PV who developed esophageol involvement while being treated with azathioprine and resolved after steroid therapy. This case highlights that esophageal involvement of PV might be resistant to immunosuppressive therapy other than steroids.
