Treatment of HCV Leads to Improvement in Patient’s Psoriasis

Hepatitis C treatment might also improve psoriasis.

A case of remission of psoriasis after treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been described in a research letter published online January 16 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Masaru Enomoto, MD, from Osaka City University in Japan, and colleagues present the case of an 80-year-old man with a 9-year history of refractory psoriasis, with a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index score of 8.3. The patient was treated with topical therapy with the corticosteroid clobetasol and the vitamin D3 analogue maxacalcitol; narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy was added. Even after topical therapy was replaced with betamethasone and the vitamin D3analogue calcipotriol, the patient’s symptoms and signs persisted.
