AbstractA 12-year-old boy had pemphigus vulgaris. When he did not improve on systemic steroid in 15 days, injection gold sodium thiomalate was added. Gold helped in reducing the dose of steroid and the child achieved complete remission after 14 doses of gold. Gold therapy is a useful adjuvant to systemic steroids in the management of pemphigus.
