  • 9. Exam Question: 2006 MB3
    • Describe the appearance of the lesion shown in the image? [2]
    • Bilateral large Pinkish plaques covered with white silvery scales.
    • What is the most likely diagnosis? [1]
    • Psoriasis

    • “ Koebner phenomenon” means the development of isomorphic psoriatic lesions immediately subsequent to, and at the site of, a cutaneous injury;
    • What is Auspitz sign what is its significance? [2]
    • Removal of the scales results in small pinpoint bleeding because of increased vascularity under focal areas of epidermal thinning. This feature occurs only in psoriasis and is known as Auspitz’s sign.
