Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory systemic papulosquamous disorder with some clinical variable characteristics. Although the most common type of psoriasis among infants is the plaque type, other stranger forms have better prognosis in children such as the guttate psoriasis. Thus, we report a case of a female child with a streptococcal perianal under-diagnosed infection as a determining factor of guttate psoriasis.
