Abstract

REDIGHIERI, Isabella Portela et al. Erythrodermic psoriasis with regression after prophylaxis with isoniazid and antidepressant therapy: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.4, suppl.1, pp. 141-143. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000700037.

An 83 year old woman, exhibiting severe psoriasis, was treated conventionally (phototherapy, acitretin, and cyclosporine). After poor clinical results and significant changes in laboratory procedures, those treatments were suspended. She was then being prepared to be submitted to biological treatment, when preliminary results disclosed a 30mm PPD. Complete improvement occurred [only] after introducing prophylactic therapy for tuberculosis and anti-depressive medication
