Abstract

Several papulosquamous skin conditions occur in the elderly, including inherited and acquired ichthyoses, psoriasis, cutaneous lymphoma, and cutaneous connective tissue diseases. The clinical presentations can be quite helpful in diagnosing these conditions, and confirmatory histology and immunologic testing can often better define the specific entities. Treatment often involves identifying underlying systemic causes, as well as specific approaches based on the diagnosis and severity of clinical presentation.
