Abstract

The coexistence of both psoriasis and vitiligo in the same location is rare to be found in one individual. We report a  44-year-old woman patient with a 2-year history of psoriasis and a 29-year history of vitiligo. Histopathological examination supports the diagnosis of vitiligo and psoriasis. These patients were given MTX therapy, topical steroids, and phototherapy of NBUVB at the initial dose of 200 M j/cm2. At 12 weeks of follow-up therapy, there was a significant improvement in psoriasis but minimal improvement in vitiligo lesions Key-words: coexistence, psoriasis, vitiligo, colocalization
