Paraneoplastic pemphigus arising in association with non-haematological cancers is extremely rare, and there are no reported cases of a patient developing this in the setting of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and only 2 reported cases of patients developing this in response to radiotherapy. Here, we present the case of a patient who developed radiotherapy-associated paraneoplastic pemphigus in the setting of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and who then developed multiple complications.
