Abstract: Atypical and unusual locations of psoriasis are very frequent. However, localized linear psoriasis is rare, with few cases described in the literature. It is characterized by a linear distribution of psoriasis lesions along Blaschko lines. We report the case of a three years old child, who presented unilateral erythematous scaly plaques arranged along Blaschko lines in the left hemithorax, with no associated symptoms and no lesions in other parts of the body. The differentiation of linear psoriasis from other … Show more

“…Because of clinical and histologic similarity, the main differential diagnosis is inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) 1 , 2 . Late onset but rapid progression of asymptomatic or slightly pruritic lesions with a possible involvement of the scalp and nails, and a favorable response to antipsoriatic treatment would indicate linear psoriasis 1 , 2 . In contrast, ILVEN lesions that usually appear in the first months of life, are slowly progressive, very pruritic, and highly refractory to antipsoriatic treatment 1 , 2 .…”
