Psoriasis guttata en la mejilla

Esta es una fotografía de psoriasis guttata (en forma de gota) en el rostro y el cuello. La psoriasis gotosa es una forma rara de psoriasis que frecuentemente sigue a una infección estreptocócica, aparece rápidamente y afecta el rostro, el cuello y las extremidades más cercanas. Los parches son pequeños y redondos u ovalados y tienen la apariencia típica de la psoriasis. Esta fotografía muestra la cobertura difusa y extendida en la cara y el cuello.
