Infantile psoriasis2


           A very interesting and strange case of red scaly oval plaques with central hypopigmentation involving the trunk specially the abdomen in a 2-month old infant of three weeks duration. Few other lesions were clasical psoriatic plaques on the forearms and thighs. On mometasone ointment once daily the rash has almost cleared within 2-3 weeks (see the second photo).
