Pemphigus vegetans is a rare variant of pemphigus vulgaris, characterized by vegetative lesions that develop mainly in flexural areas. Herein, we present a middle-aged woman who presented to the emergency department with a rare cutaneous finding of bilateral axillary pustules that progressed over months to vegetant and malodorous plaques associated with subsequent painful erosions.
