Abstract

Psoriasis in children can be a challenging diagnosis: the clinical presentation is often more subtle, may occur in covered sites and can be an unexpected diagnosis as psoriasis if often thought to occur at older ages. Poor recognition and delayed diagnosis of psoriasis in children can lead to inadequate treatment and lack of monitoring for comorbidities including juvenile psoriatic arthritis. Diagnostic criteria would help both clinical practice and clinical research, but to date none are available. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
