Statins are known to have a number of cutaneous adverse effects including the induction of autoimmune diseases like systemic and subacute lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis, polymyositis, lichen planus pemphigoides and the drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS). Statins have been also reported as a triggering factor of psoriasis. We report a case of psoriasis vulgaris that worsened three months after atorvastatin was introduced and improved after its discontinuance.
