A patient initially diagnosed as pemphigus vulgaris four months back presented to our outpatient department. She also had large thyroid swelling and abdominal mass. A thorough workup embarked on manifestations implicating an intimate association. Pemphigus vulgaris like lesions coexisting with an ovarian neoplasm and multinodular goiter raised the possibility of paraneoplastic pemphigus, a well recognized yet rare entity. The purpose of this report is to stress upon the importance of preserving a broad outlook while confronting atypicality in any disease.
