Aggravation of psoriasis and occurrence of psoriasiform cutaneous eruptions induced by practolol (Eraldin).Acta Derm Venereol 1976; 56(3):239-43AD
Twelve patients with cutaneous and/or eye symptoms caused by practolol have been studied. The morphological appearance of the skin eruptions was psoriasiform in 5, vesiculo-papular in one, and exfoliating dermatitis was seen in 2 patients. Keratoconjunctivitis sicca was the only adverse reaction to practolol in one and was present in 3 additional patients. Practolol was found to aggravate existing psoriasis in 3 patients and render it extremely refractory to therapy.
