In women with psoriasis, the course of the disease during conception, pregnancy and delivery generally does not differ from other individuals involved. In psoriasis patients, pre-pregnancy period offers time to learn about the hereditary nature of the disease, the effect of hormonal changes and acceptable treatments during pregnancy. In the majority of patients, psoriasis improved during pregnancy and worsened six weeks after delivery. Women should tell their dermatologist early if they plan to become pregnant and the treatment during pregnancy should be considered carefully. This article provides a short review of the most important literature data on therapeutic options for psoriasis in pregnancy.
