Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting 1-3% of the population. The incidence of palmoplantar involvement has been estimated to be between 2.8% and 40.9%. Significant psychosocial distress and difficulty performing activities of daily living can result. Treatment is often challenging. Traditional treatments include topical steroids, anthralin, calcipotriene, PUVA, methotrexate, cyclosporine, retinoids and biologics. In this case series, we report our success with the 308-nm excimer laser in the treatment of palmoplantar psoriasis.
