Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a rare type of psoriasis and is considered the most severe variant. Infantile pustular psoriasis (IPP) is a very rare form of GPP. Severe IPP may be difficult to control and is complicated by bacterial superinfection, dehydration, and sepsis. Herein, a 2.5-month-old infant with IPP is presented, who was successfully treated with systemic retinoid therapy, which appears to be a safe and effective option for this challenging pustular eruption of childhood.
