Sample text

The face may be involved with red scaly areas. Unlike psoriasis, the prognosis for this eruption in infancy is good and the rash responds well to treatment and tends to disappear after the age of 1 year. Some reports have claimed that, although the rash in infancy disappears, it is a form of psoriasis and that there is a higher incidence of psoriasis in later life. However, this has been disputed in other reports. In addition, one study has shown that incidence of HLA antigens B13, B17 and B37 is no higher in infants with diaper ‘psoriasis’ compared to normal individuals.

Linear psoriasis from a scratch Patients with erythrodermic psoriasis lose excessive heat because of generalized vasodilatation of the cutaneous vessels. This may give rise to hypothermia. Therefore, patients with erythrodermic psoriasis are often found to be shivering, in an attempt to raise their body temperature. Edema of the limbs develops because of the vasodilatation and loss of protein from the blood vessels into the tissues.

The skin is bright red, but the scaling is different from that seen in chronic plaque. There are no thick adherent white scales; instead there is superficial scaling. In erythrodermic psoriasis, the psoriatic process is at its most active, with increased proliferation and loss of maturation of the keratinocytes, and their increased transit time; this in turn leads to abnormal keratin production, and the keratin that is formed is loosely bound and quickly shed.
