Hailey Hailey Disease

Common Name(s)

Hailey Hailey Disease, Familial benign pemphigus, Hailey-Hailey Disease

Hailey-Hailey disease is an inherited condition characterized by recurrent blisters seen primarily on the neck, groin, and axillae (armpit). Precipitating factors include heat, sweating, skin infection, and ultraviolet radiation. The disorder often becomes apparent after puberty, usually by the third or fourth decade, but symptoms can develop at any age.  Hailey-Hailey disease occurs due to a mutation in a specific gene (ATP2C1) that creates a protein that is essential for skin health. There is no cure for this condition. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing flare-ups. This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.
