PMID: 35638489.


Pemphigus is an autoimmune blistering disease affecting the skin and mucus membranes. It is a debilitating skin condition with painful bullae and erosions, which may limit the patient's daily activities. Therefore, measuring the quality of life (QoL) from the perspective of physical, functional, social, and emotional well-being is important to address the disease burden. This study aims to review the demography and assess the impact of disease on QoL in pemphigus patients at the Department of Dermatology, Hospital Melaka.
