Introduction: Currently the real cause of pemphigus vulgaris is unknown, however, it has been considered a genetic predisposition, associated with certain haplotypes (HLA), such as HLA-DR4 in the Jewish population, and HLA-DR14 and HLA- DR10 in Mexicans.

Objective: To report, and review the literature, in a case of blistering skin and scaly oral lesions consistent with Pemphigus Vulgaris in an 8-year old girl.

Case Presentation: 8-year-old female, presenting with reactive blisters. Physical examination revealed scaly areas, scars in various stages, blisters and bullae on the extremities, abdomen and face.

Conclusions: Interdisciplinary work between doctors and dentists allows the early detection and treatment of systemic pathologies in order to reduce their impact.
