Background and Design: Plasmapheresis and immunoadsorption, which is a more advanced method, are among the treatment options that induce a rapid remission in severe and resistant pemphigus. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of plasmapheresis and immunoadsorption therapies via the clinical experience gained from our patients with pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP).
