Inverse psoriasis refers to a variant of the disease that affects flexural and intertriginous skin and can have a profound impact on quality of life. Reports show that up to 36% of psoriasis patients have flexural disease and that 2%-7% of psoriasis patients present with this primary pattern of lesions in isolation. 1-4 Due to the infrequency of this variant, it is often misdiagnosed and mistreated.
