Ostraceous Psoriasis


The answer to yesterdays Medical Challenge is #3: Ostraceous psoriasis. That was a stumper, but some of you got it. Of course, the dermatologist knew!

Psoriasis can present with many different appearances. It is a common, recurrent immune mediated disease of the skin and joints. It is found worldwide and has a strong genetic component. The scaling papules and plaques are circular with grey or silvery-white appearance. They usually appear on the scalp, elbows, knees,lumbosacral area and in body folds. The term Ostraceous psoriasis refers to the thickened plaques that have concave centers similar in shape to oyster shells.

Psoriasis is not contagious.

Anon: Severe cases such as this require extensive treatment. Treatments include topical corticosteroids and other immune modulating medications and phototherapy (PUVA. the disease is unpredictable and goes through cycles of improvement and worsening at random. The treatment plan is individualized for each case of psoriasis.

People who suffer from psoriasis know that this uncomfortable and at times disfiguring skin disease can be difficult and frustrating to treat. The condition comes and goes in cycles of remissions and flare-ups over a lifetime. While there are medications and other therapies that can help to clear up the patches of red, scaly, thickened skin that are the hallmark of psoriasis, there is no cure.
