Abstract: 
Pemphigus IS a chronic blistering mucocutaneous disease, classified III immunobullous skin diseases. Infections, particularly septicemia due to Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeroginosa are the most common and dangerous disorders due to immonusuppressive therapy in this disease. Infection with nocardia is rare, so that only 6 cases have been reported yet. Herein, we report a 56-year-oldman with one year history of pemphigus treatedwith prednisolone and cyclophosphamide, who at the same time developed skin and pulmonary nocardiosis. He had a good response to treatment with cotrimoxazole.
