Treatments and outcomes of generalized pustular psoriasis: A cohort of 1516 patients in a nationwide inpatient database in Japan

“Because generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is uncommon, there are few studies reporting treatments and outcomes for large numbers of patients,” Hideaki Miyachi, MD, PhD, of the department of dermatology at the Graduate School of Medicine at Chiba University in Chiba, Japan, and colleagues wrote.”
