Psoriasis in an ancient disease etiology and treatment of which is still not sufficiently known. We therefore tried oral zinc in a series of patients, a demonstrative example of which is presented here: A 14 year old girl complaining of recurring lesions of psoriasis since four years was treated with oral zinc. Complete cure followed. The clinical and laboratory data are presented. It appears that oral zinc administration has a place in treatment of psoriasis.
