SANGUINETTI, Juana; SUAR, Lucila; EIMER, Lena  y  BUSSO, Corina. Successful treatment with risankizumab in a patient with psoriasis and HIV. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2022, vol.82, n.4, pp.605-608. ISSN 0025-7680.

The treatment of psoriasis in HIV-positive patients is challenging, as they may require systemic immunosuppressive treatment such as biological agents, leading to an increased risk of infections. A case report of an HIV positive patient with severe psoriasis without arthropathic compromise, refractory to other treatments, is presented. There are limited data on the use of biological therapies in HIV-positive patients, but isolated case reports suggest that their use is effective and safe. Specifically, the emergence of monoclonal antibodies selective for interleukin 23 such as risankizumab may offer a safe and effective therapy for HIV-positive patients with psoriasis refractory to other treatments. In any case, controlled studies are required to fully define its safety and efficacy.
