Figure 3: Various psoriasiform changes seen on histopathological examination

Mentions: Histopathology of lesions from the glans showed parakaratosis containing neutrophils forming intracorneal and superficial epidermal pustules resembling spongiform pustules. Mucosal epithelium showed psoriasiform hyperplasia. Lymphocytic inflammation with admixed neutrophils was seen in upper submucosa. Special stain Periodic Acid Schiff was negative for fungus [Figure 3]. Thus, histopathological examination was consistent with genital psoriasis and reactive arthritis.
