Although nail psoriasis is common, the results of treatment of nail psoriasis are often disappointing, and unfortunately there is little information addressing the efficacy of systemic therapies in patients with diffuse and severe nail involvement in the absence of skin disease. This open study involved 36 patients with moderate to severe psoriasis limited to the nails treated with low-dose acitretin from January 2005 through January 2007.

QoL is an important feature in this field of pathology because, for similar body surface involvement, regional psoriasis is probably more disturbing for the patient than lesions on covered parts of the body. 11531158, 2005.

Psoriasis of the nail: anatomy, pathology, clinical presentation, and a review of the literature on therapy. K. Diagnosis of nail psoriasis: importance of biopsy and histopathology. Overall, the primary purpose of nail biopsy is to help the clinician establish or confirm a definitive diagnosis and, thus, initiate early effective treatment to prevent further nail destruction. To establish the presence of a psoriatic nail versus a mycotic nail or other underlying nail disease causing long-standing nail plate deformity (eg, onycholysis) 40. To obtain diagnostic and prognostic information in presentations of isolated nail pathology when routine diagnostic procedures are unsuccessful 41. Denkler K. A comprehensive review of epinephrine in the finger: to do or not to do. Literature concerning clinical signs and frequency of nail psoriasis is incomplete. 12Rich, P., Griffiths, C.E., Reich, K., Nestle, F.O., Scher, R.K., Li, S. et al. The diagnosis of many conditions often also requires a skin biopsy which yields histologic information 11 12 that can be correlated with the clinical presentation and any laboratory data. In these situations, nail microscopy can be an important aid to diagnosis. Nail biopsy can target specific areas of the nail apparatus (matrix, nail bed, nail plate), the adjacent tissues, or a combination of these tissues.
