Resumo

The nail involvement in pemphigus vulgaris has been associated with the severity of disease; and paronychia, onychomadesis, Beau’s lines and nail hemorrhages, are more often reported. In the young patient herein described the conspicuous nail changes developed during the convalescent period of disease, after a long-term administration of azathioprine and sulfone. Nail changes can be reversible and these drugs are safe and useful to the pemphigus control. Case reports might contribute to better knowledge about phenomena not well understood yet.
