Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory papulosquamous disorder which typically follows a relapsing and remitting course. The condition is rare among West Africans compared with other Africans and the world. Although psoriasis is most frequently diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 25, it can appear at any time and, can affect children of all ages, including infants. The clinical manifestations of psoriasis in a child are generally similar to those in an adult. Here we report a case of a 6 month West African child with plaque type psoriasis with lesions predominantly in the diaper area.
