Differential Diagnosis

History:

A very interesting and strange case of red scaly oval plaques with central hypopigmentation involving the trunk specially the abdomen in a 2-month old infant of three weeks duration. Few other lesions were clasical psoriatic plaques on the forearms and thighs. On moderately potent topica CS (Mometasoneointment) once daily the rash has almost cleared within 2-3 weeks. The last photo showed response after treatment.
