Abstract

Background: Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is an autoimmune disease characterized by acantholysis. PV decreases quality of life and leads to morbidity and mortality. Although the association between PV and otolaryngeal disease has been studied, its effect on olfaction has not been investigated objectively and quantitatively.
