Abstract

Nail psoriasis is often found in patients with plaque psoriasis and can greatly impact quality of life. This is particularly true in more severe cases, as it affects the structure and function of the patient’s nail. Treatment for nail psoriasis is often challenging, involving topical medications, injections, and systematic therapies. This article aims to give an overview of the varied clinical presentations of nail psoriasis and the current treatments available for patients with this condition. Risks and efficacies of these treatments will be evaluated to determine the best treatment protocols.
