We report the case of a patient who presented a psoriasiform dermatitis after 8 months of athenol therapy. Regression of the lesion was obtained after suspension of therapy. To our knowledge, few reports of psoriasiform dermatitis induced by athenolol are present in the literature. The Authors briefly discuss the pathogenesis of this drug induced disease.
