Pellegra and Psoriasis, an interesting combination.



Our star medical student Elizabeth Wang presented her poster at the AAD this week. It was on a case presentation of a patient with pellegra and psoriasis. This is an interesting disease combination because both disease produce psoriasis-(like) changes on pathology but psoriasis gets better with phototherapy while pellegra is exacerbated by UV radiation. This was one of the clues that led to the second diagnosis of pellegra in this patient.  He ended up responding well to niacin. (Dr. Maverakis is a member of the world renown UC Davis Foods for Health Institute). Elizabeth was mentored by Dr. Cindy Chambers on this project.
