This is correct, it is an autoimmune disease and is not contagious. We have information on pemphigus here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/pemphigus/treatments.

Pemphigus can be a very difficult thing to have, and painful. The drugs used to treat the more severe cases are chemo drugs. Your brother in law is going to need a lot of support and compassion.

If we can help further, please let us know. Thank you for writing.

It is an autoimmune disease so it is NOT contagious.
Start learning about it here:

Also check Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic web sites.

Good luck to your brother, he has a hard road ahead.
