Psoriasis and Look-alikes—A Photo Essay

A 56-year-old man was seen for the sudden appearance of a rash on the trunk and extremities. Immediately before presentation, he had experienced a severe upper respiratory tract infection, which included pharyngitis. His eruption largely consisted of multiple small plaques with a notable paucity of large plaques. This is a good example of guttate (“drop-like”) psoriasis.
