Use of cyclosporin in a patient with hepatitis C and pustular psoriasis

, : Use of cyclosporin in a patient with hepatitis C and pustular psoriasis. Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia 86(4 Suppl 1): S193-S195

Cyclosporine has been contraindicated in patients with chronic infections such as infection with hepatitis C because of its immunosuppressive effect. Recent studies have shown however that cyclosporine suppresses viral replication and thus cannot exacerbate infection with hepatitis C when employed for treating patients with psoriasis. We present the case of a female patient with psoriasis for 30 years and hepatitis C for 20 years, with diffuse circinate lesions. Improvement in the skin condition and liver enzymes was obtained with the use of cyclosporine, with no adverse effect.
