Abstract: Plaque psoriasis is a multisystem inflammatory disease that affects children and adults. Skin lesions are the most prominent manifestation, appearing as localized or widespread red plaques with silvery scale. Psoriasis may be associated with arthritis, obesity, metabolic syndrome, psychiatric disease, impaired quality of life, and increased risk of cardiovascular disease.1 The etiology and precise pathogenesis of psoriasis remain unclear. Treatment selection depends on body surface area affected, lesion characteristics (thickness, location), symptoms such as itch and pain, and comorbidities. Topical medications are prescribed in almost all cases, alone or in combination with other therapies.2
