Capillaroscopy is a widely used technique to detect early morphological and functional abnormalities in periungual capillaries through which many different diseases (connective tissue disorders, Raynaud’s phenomenon, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, etc.) manifest themselves. Here, we applied capillaroscopy to psoriasis plaques in two patients to evaluate progression of the disorder following systemic treatment with two biological drugs, infliximab and etanercept.
