Recent groundbreaking therapies for psoriasis target specific pathways that drive this systemic inflammatory disease. However, patients with nonplaque psoriasis phenotypes often do not qualify for these therapies and are currently undertreated because of the criteria used during the development of novel agents. We propose use of the phrase "polyphenotypic psoriasis" to describe both plaque and nonplaque subtypes, as well as single and multiple phenotype involvement in individual patients. The goal of using the phrase "polyphenotypic psoriasis" is to remind clinicians about the heterogeneous manifestations of psoriasis in addition to chronic plaque psoriasis.
