Abstract

Psoriasis vulgaris may be worsened or precipitated by numerous factors, including hormonal influences. Several lines of evidence suggest that female sex hormones such as estrogen and progesterone affect this condition. We describe a patient whose psoriasis responded favorably to administration of the antiestrogen compound tamoxifen.
