Introduction: Pemphigus vulgaris is a rare intra-epidermal autoimmune dermatosis, characterized by bullous cutaneous and mucosal involvement. Ocular involvement is relatively rare, of which blepharitis or conjunctivitis with hyperemia and secretions are the most described lesions
Methods: we report the case of a patient, who was hospitalized in dermatology for dermatological pemphigus with ocular involvement.
Results: the patient presented an erosive bilateral cutaneous-palpebral lesions with purulent secretions associated with conjunctival hyperemia
Conclusion: Ocular involvement in the common pemphigus remains an exception, the prognosis of which is often mild.
