LOPEZ VALCARCEL, Mónica  and  FAURA BERRUGA, Cristina. Annular psoriasis. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.1, pp.52-55. ISSN 2386-8201.

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which occurs in outbreaks with very different clinical expressions, being the most frequent in recurrent scaly erythematous papules or plaques. There are other less frequent presentation forms which require differential diagnosis from other entities as they may require a different clinical approach and therapy. This is the case of annular psoriasis, an uncommon variant in which the physician must carry out an exhaustive physical examination of the patient to find other skin lesions that can orientate diagnosis. A fungal culture and a cutaneous biopsy must be performed in order to confirm the suspected diagnosis.
