Psoriasis is primarily an inherited inflammatory skin disease, it is characterized by erythemato-squamous lesions that usually involve elbows, knees and the scalp. Oral manifestations are rare in psoriasis, infact, oral psoriasis involves 2% of psoriatic patients and usually it is observed with the onset of cutaneous lesions and progresses with them.
