By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A disease, defined to consist of vesicles, scattered over the body; transparent, filbert-sized, with a red, inflamed edge, but without surrounding blush or tumefaction; on breaking, disposed to ulcerate; fluid, pellucid or slightly coloured; fever, typhous. It is doubtful whether any such idiopathic fever have ever existed: the probability is, that the fever and vesications have been an accidental complication Cullen thinks the Pemphigus Helveticus must have been malignant sore throat. If, however, such a distinct disease did exist, it was probably only as an endemico-epidemic.

A skin disease characterized by the primary occurrence of bullae in the skin, not bullae occurring in the course of some other skin affection. When unqualified, the term pemphigus is understood to mean pemphigus chronicus. The lesions of the disease are bullae which develop usually with discoverable preliminary erythema. At first they are tense and translucent, with thin walls and without perceptible areolae, varying in size from a pea to an egg. Their duration is one to two weeks and they heal quickly, leaving no scar. The constitutional symptoms are slight fever and malaise.
