Abstract: Erythrodermic psoriasis is an uncommon, inflammatory and severe variant of psoriasis. The symptoms include widespread skin erythema, scaling of more than 75 % of the body surface area. Erythrodermic psoriasis has life threatening complications that include hemodynamic, immunologic, metabolic and thermoregulatory disturbances. Identifying this potentially life-threatening form of psoriasis is crucial. A detail history and detailed evaluation of the patient is necessary to establish the diagnosis. We hereby report a case of erythrodermic psoriasis and review this important disease.
