Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease, present in 1-3% of the world’s population (1). It affects both sexes equally (2) and is characterized by various clinical features. Common sites of involvement are the extremities, trunk, scalp and nails. Although cutaneous lesions are generally sufficiently distinct to make a diagnosis, diagnostic difficulties can be found in cases of unusual involvement. Herein, we present a case of psoriasis involving the lips in a 20-year-old woman, who had a 2-months history of erythemosquamous lesions on her lips.
