Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease which may occur in childhood. In many psoriasis cases, the disease develops in individuals younger than 18 years old. Psoriasis in children presents with a variety of clinical manifestations. Becouse of its atypical presentations, early diagnosis of psoriasis is difficult in children. The plaque type psoriasis is the most common form of the disease in children. Different treatments such as phototherapy and systemic therapies have been proposed, but using any of them leads to serious complications in children. Therefore, early diagnosis and proper management of the disease are the main components of the treatment in pediatric psoriasis cases. Herein, we aimed to provide a general overview on the pediatric psoriasis, including its epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations as well as the treatment and discussing the latest related information.
