Synopsis

Hailey-Hailey disease, also known as benign familial pemphigus, is an autosomal dominant disease affecting intertriginous skin, most commonly in the groin, axillae, and lateral neck. The inframammary area and antecubital fossae may be involved less frequently, as may non-intertriginous skin. The primary flaccid vesicles and erosions that develop as a result of loss of keratinocyte cohesiveness may become secondarily infected with bacteria or yeast and may itch mildly. The disease is aggravated by hot and humid weather.

For more information, see OMIM.
