Abstract

The case of a 67-year-old man who has had psoriasis with multiple joints involvement for 30 years and renal failure for 1 year is described. He was admitted because of uremic symptoms and exacerbation of psoriasis. Hypocalcemia and low serum active 1,25(OH)2D3 were also observed. Hemodialysis, oral 1,25(OH)2D3 and CaCO3 supplement were employed. Interestingly, the psoriasis strikingly improved. The relationships among psoriasis, renal failure, 1,25(OH)2D3, serum calcium level and dialysis are discussed.
