IgG/IgA pemphigus is a phenotype of atypical pemphigus with variable clinical, histological, and immunological manifestations. We describe a unique case of IgG/IgA pemphigus in a 58-year-old male presenting with mixed features of pemphigus erythematosus and IgA pemphigus. The diagnosis is made based on the histopathological examination and intercellular deposition of IgG and IgA throughout the epidermis on direct immunofluorescence test. The patient responded favorably to the combination therapy of dapsone and low-dose systemic steroids.
