Abstract

Many biologic agents are available to treat psoriasis, however only a few reports describe the efficacy and safety for patients with psoriasis complicated by kidney failure. In this report we demonstrated a case of severe plaque psoriasis complicated with end-stage renal disease (ESRD,) successfully treated with ustekinumab without the necessity for dose adjustment.
