Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic non-contagious inflammatory disease present in up to 3% of the population. As for the forms of presentation, it can be classified into: vulgar or in plaques (most common manifestation), in drops or gutta, erythrodermic, pustular or arthropathic. Moreover, some atypical cases stand out, such as acute pustular psoriasis namely Von Zumbusch. Systemic complications, such as heart failure and diseases, can be fatal. Next, we report the case of a patient with Von Zumbusch's pustular psoriasis admitted to our service and admitted for clinical investigation.
