Paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) is a rare type of pemphigus which is seen in association with lymphoproliferative diseases, most commonly with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and several other malignities. The disease presents with severe mucosal involvement, polymorphous skin eruption and respiratory problems. It has its own histopathologic features and immunfluorescence findings unlike the other types and has a poor prognosis. In this report, we describe a patient who developed PNP in two years after the diagnosis of B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
