Psoriasis is a common inflammatory dermatosis that may be seen in infants, children, and adolescents. The clinical presentation and course may be quite variable, and while patients with mild disease are often easily managed, those with recalcitrant or more severe disease often present a therapeutic dilemma given the number of therapies available and the relative lack of data on the efficacy and safety of use of these therapies in children. Diagnosis in children can be more difficult, but family history may be helpful. Moreover, sometimes clinical pattern of pediatric psoriasis is very different from its adult counterpart or it could manifests in association with atopic dermatitis, and for these reason it is possibly misdiagnosed and under recognized. We therefore focus on diagnostic patterns and effective treatments of this challenging disease.
