Oligaemia, Renal Failure, and Jaundice Associated With Acute Pustular Psoriasis

Br Med J. 1974 May 25;2(5916):406-8. doi: 10.1136/bmj.2.5916.406.

Abstract

An episode of acute pustular psoriasis in a middle-aged man was associated with cholestatic jaundice and followed by acute tubular necrosis. It is suggested that renal failure was due to oligaemia after the loss of albumin into and from the skin. Fluid balance, central venous pressure, and arterial blood pressure should be monitored in patients with acute pustular psoriasis.
