Background: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder that may be initiated or exacerbated by some drug intakes. Some of the most common medications known to trigger or worsen existing psoriasis include lithium, gold salts, beta blockers and antimalarials.

Conclusion: We report an exceptional case of plantar psoriasis in a woman who was treated by olmesartan for 3 years.

Keywords: Psoriasis, sartans, antagonist receptors of angiotensin II, olmesartan, side effect, interleukin.
