Abstract

Pustular psoriasis has different clinicomorphologic forms such as generalized, localized (mainly palmoplantar or acral), and annular. There are also few cases with a linear distribution pattern. We report a case of pustular psoriasis with a striking linear distribution probably related to Blaschko's lines. We suggest that linear pattern should also be considered among the morphologic variants of pustular psoriasis.
