How to treat this condition long-term.
“In most cases of pemphigus foliaceus, the disease tends to be chronic. As a result, I recommend the addition of azathioprine (chlorambucil in the cat) as an adjunct to corticosteroid therapy. The goal would be to taper off corticosteroid therapy and use azathioprine long-term.”
