The pemphigus vulgaris is a serious bullous disease of the adult. The pharyngolaryngeal localization has rarely been described. The oral and genital localizations are often inaugural. We report the case of a 45 year old female who presented a laryngeal pemphigus which evolved during several years before its cure. The bullous dermatosis are serious affections capable of being stressfull to life. Their diagnosis and treatment must be done quickly. The discovery of painful pharyngolaryngeal lesions, erosive or bullous, must lead to a biopsy with immunofluorescence histological examination in order to diagnose the pemphigus vulgaris and conduct quickly the treatment.
