Use of cyclosporin in a patient with hepatitis C and pustular psoriasis. The prevalence of the disease in childhood and adolescence ranges between 0. In these cases various agents were used to stem progression, including sulphasalazine (SAS), methotrexate (MTX) and azathioprine (AZA). There have been case reports of successful treatment of RS and psoriatic skin lesions as well as arthritis with this agent 4, 5.

Exclusion criteria were other types of psoriasis (guttate, erythrodermic, and pustular psoriasis);
