Psoriasis Vulgaris

Since this is a diagnostic-related blog, I will keep this discussion short and sweet:  this is classic plaque psoriasis, with salmon colored plaques, silvery scale and pinpoint bleeding areas (Auspitz Sign).  The moustache is a red herring.  It has nothing to do with his psoriasis.  

As you all know, there are different varieties of psoriasis, but the most common one is plaque type.  For a bonus, name three other types of psoriasis, other than plaque type.  Bon week-end!
