Successful treatment of pediatric nail psoriasis with periodic pustular eruption using topical indigo naturalis oil extract.

Abstract

Psoriasis of the nail greatly affects quality of life because of the difficulty in achieving long-lasting remission. Pustular psoriasis of the nail apparatus is characterized by the formation of sterile pustules, starting on one or two fingers or less often on the toes, and spontaneous improvement has rarely been observed. This case presents a girl with refractory nail psoriasis accompanied by periodic pustular eruption that responded well to topical treatment with indigo naturalis oil extract drops, achieving a remission of longer than 1 year.
