Inverse psoriasis, also known as intertriginous psoriasis, presents itself as erythematous plaques with poor or nondesquamation in skin flexion folds. Inverse psoriasis is a rare form of psoriasis associated with pityriasis amiantacea. This condition affects the intertriginous areas, making it difficult to diagnose and treat. Here, we report a case with lesions in the intertriginous area with pityriasis amiantacea in a patient of achondroplasia, who showed improvement with dapsone.
