Welcome and Introduction
Diagnosing and Assessing Severity of Pustular Psoriasis
Managing Pustular Psoriasis
Q&A Session and Activity Roundup
Pustular psoriasis is a clinically heterogenous group of rare psoriasis subtypes characterized by aseptic, neutrophil-rich pustules. The three most common types are generalized pustular psoriasis, palmoplantar pustular psoriasis, and acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau. The diagnosis of pustular psoriasis relies mainly on clinical features and is challenging. Recent guidelines on diagnosis, classification, and assessment of severity have been published by ERASPEN and by the Japanese Dermatological Association.
Current systemic treatment has involved cyclosporine, methotrexate or acitretin. The Japanese Dermatological Association has also published guidelines that include a treatment algorithm. However, it has been recognized that IL-36 cytokines are likely the key driver of the autoimmune response in pustular psoriasis. There are two novel, investigational monoclonal antibodies that target the IL-36 receptor. In addition, agents that target other molecules have also been investigated.
Pustular Psoriasis: Recognizing and Treating A Rare But Serious Disease will review the most recent guidelines for diagnosing, classifying, and assessing the severity of pustular psoriasis and provide information on current treatment guidelines and agents in development to manage this rare group of disorders.

The intended audience for this educational initiative is dermatologists, the clinicians who manage patients with pustular psoriasis.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Discuss how the pathophysiology of pustular psoriasis differs from that of plaque psoriasis
- Employ the most recent consensus recommendations to diagnose and classify pustular psoriasis
- Apply the most recent guidelines when managing patients with pustular psoriasis
- Assess the mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety of agents in development for managing pustular psoriasis
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Potomac Center for Medical Education and Rockpointe. The Potomac Center for Medical Education is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
