LOPEZ PUPO, Natacha et al. Hailey - Hailey disease in several generations of a family . MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.12, pp.1936-1941. ISSN 1029-3019.

Two case reports of adult siblings are described, who presented with benign familial pemphigus or Hailey-Hailey disease --type of genodermatosis by altered epidermal cohesion-- attended in "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital of Santiago de Cuba. Patients were treated with steroids at anti-inflammatory doses, antibiotics, and topical plant liniment and aloe cream, besides receiving flower therapy. In general, both of them improved the clinical picture during their stay in this institution.

Keywords : benign familial pemphigus; Hailey-Hailey disease; genodermatosis; dermatology ward; secondary health care.
