Pemphigus disease characterized by bullous lesions and erosions of the skin and mucosae. The disease may develop due to some drugs but, at the same time it may flare up by misuse of some non-drug substances. We experienced that a 51-year-old patient who misused non-prescribed mixture contains the following substances of donkey milk, tar, puse and tree root water by the advice of his charlatan friend. His pemphigus vulgaris disease showed the transition to foliaceus subtype and secondary erythroderma accompanied.
