Clinical resolution of pemphigus vulgaris on rituximab
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D3239036502
Although significant progress has been made for the treatment of pemphigus vulgaris (PV) with rituximab (RTX), a consensus remains to be determined for standard treatment protocol, regarding optimal dosing, infusion regimen, and use of concomitant immunotherapy to achieve safe, effective, and rapid clinical response. We describe a patient with pemphigus vulgaris treated with high dose rituximab with the rheumatoid arthritis protocol along with intravenous immunoglobulin therapy. This case provides evidence towards the growing body of research needed to modify and improve treatment for pemphigus using rituximab.
