The color of some of the lesions especially which show arciform and sigmoidal cofiguration with violacious colour and scanty scaling. Biiopsy them to r/o the pissibilty of CTCL, as the duration of psoriasiform lesion is 13yrs which may musquerade ss psoriasis or chr eczema. If it is ruled out u know what is best for the pt.

Thank you Doctors, Widespread bizarre lesions with evolution in one side and resolution in other side more favour to GYRATE TYPE PF PSORIASIS. Monitoring the case is very important by doing all investigations before going treatment. TREATMENT: 1) 12% Salicylic acid cream morning. Calcipotriol in night time. 2) Tab Mext 7.5 pack contains 30 tabs folic acid daily and Methotrexate 2.5 mg weekly once for 6 to 8 packs good remission. But monitoring of patient of CBP and LFT are important. 3) Tab Hydroxyzine 25 mg daily morning and night. 4) good nutrition , good habits and good rest with tensionless life will improve the condition

Chronic Plaque Psoraisis. Agree with Dr Gurcharan Singh. But long standing plaques do need a biopsy to rule out large plaque Parapsoriasis leading to Mycosis Fungoides.

But the case is posted as a case of psoriasis. so it is assumed a case of confirmed psoriasis of which type and management demanded as the subject for discussion. Yes I agree MF should be ruled out .
