With full approval of our institutional review board, informed consent was obtained. The patient's scalp was mapped using clear plastic templates. Immediately before treatment, a score of 9 was noted on the modified Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI), which is used to assess erythema, induration, and scaling (0, none; 1, slight; 2, moderate; 3, severe; and 4, very severe). Half of the large psoriatic plaque was treated with the 308-nm excimer laser using the scalp delivery device; the other half served as a control. Mineral oil was applied to both areas before the treatment began. A 2.5-cm spot size was used, with pulses delivered in a 25% overlapping fashion. The initial dose administered was 200 mJ/cm2, and subsequent doses were increased incrementally by 50 to 200 mJ/cm2 based on the patient's tolerance, ie, the sensation and/or clinical appearance of burning. Her final dose was 3600 mJ/cm2. The psoriatic plaque was to be treated 2 times per week, every 48 to 72 hours, for up to 30 treatments or until clinical clearing was noted (modified PASI score, ≤3). Our patient required only 22 treatments before clearing occurred. The average time of each painless treatment was less than 10 minutes. Between treatments and during the follow-up period, only the use of over-the-counter antidandruff shampoos was allowed.

The impact of psoriasis on confidence and self-esteem A monoclonal antibody against IL-17a, ixekizumab, was analyzed in a post hoc analysis of the Phase 2 trial to determine the effect on scalp psoriasis.55 A total of 105/142 (74%) patients enrolled in the Phase 2 program had scalp involvement with a mean baseline PSSI of 18.7 (SD 14.1). At week 12, the percentage improvement of PSSI from baseline was 87.1% (25 mg), 94.8% (75 mg), and 84.8% (150 mg) compared to 30.5% (placebo). By week 20, a PSSI of 0, or clear, was achieved in 58.3%, 66.7%, and 86.4% of patients receiving ixekizumab (25 mg, 75 mg, and 150 mg, respectively) compared to only 10% in the placebo group. At the end of the open-label period at week 48, all patients were receiving ixekizumab 120 mg every 4 weeks, and 78% of all patients had a PSSI of 0.55

We expressed the results of the single studies as risk ratios (RR) with 95% confidence intervals (CI) for dichotomous outcomes, and mean differences (MD) with 95% CI for continuous outcomes. If studies were sufficiently homogeneous, we meta-analysed the data by using the random-effects model. Where it was not possible to calculate a point estimate for a single study, we described the data qualitatively. We also presented the number needed to treat to benefit (NNTB).
