Psoriasis is a common skin condition seen in pediatrics. Treatment modalities used to treat psoriasis in children are different from those prevailing in the adult population and require adequate testing in pediatric subjects. This article reviews the published evidence on the different treatment modalities for pediatric psoriasis over the past 5 years.
