Background: Generalized pustular psoriasis has a benign course in children compared to adults. In severe form, it might endanger patient’s life. Considering the rarity of the disease in children, no therapeutic options are safe and effective in childhood pustular psoriasis. Cyclosporine, acitretin, and methotrexate are most commonly used medications to control pediatric generalized pustular psoriasis. Some reviews recommend that retinoids are the main treatment in pustular psoriasis. But in early childhood, it’s difficult to manage with retinoids. This case report describes childhood pustular psoriasis with satisfactory response and good tolerance with cyclosporine.
Keywords: pustular psoriasis, childhoodpsoriasis, cyclosporine
