Hanfstingl, Kathrin; Pekar-Lukacs, Agnes; Motz, Reinhard; Guenova, Emmanuella; Hoetzenecker, Wolfram (2018). Successful Treatment of Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris with Ixekizumab. Case Reports in Dermatology, 10(2):97-100.

Abstract

Pityriasis rubra pilaris is an inflammatory dermatologic disorder of unknown cause and often confounded with psoriasis. It is characterised by hyperkeratotic follicular papules, scaly erythematous plaques, palmoplantar keratoderma, and a progression to generalised erythroderma. Here, we report the case of a 68-year-old man with pityriasis rubra pilaris, who was successfully treated with ixekizumab, an interleukin-17A inhibitor.
