A 43-years-old woman, phototype II, with a previous diagnosis of plaque psoriasis, started follow-up at the Dermatology service of University Santo Amaro in February 2018. Dermatological examination showed scaly erythematous plaques infiltrated along areas of extension, back, abdomen and scalp. The patient denied any joint complaints. She also presented hidradenitis suppurativa (Hurley 1-2) and hypothyroidism as comorbidities. She reported previous treatments for more than 2 years with acitretin, suspended due to the onset of severe diffuse alopecia; infliximab, discontinued due to early treatment failure; and etanercept, suspended due to drug unavailability.
