Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin affecting approximately 2% of the world’s population. Systemic treatments, including methotrexate and cyclosporin, are associated with potential hepatotoxicity, due to either direct liver damage or immunosuppression or both immunomediated and a direct liver injury; therefore, treatment of patients with psoriasis poses a therapeutic challenge. The aim of this minireview is to help clinicians in the management of psoriatic patients who develop signs of liver dysfunction. To find relevant articles, a comprehensive search was performed on PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane with appropriate combinations of the following keywords being considered: viral hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, psoriasis, hepatotoxicity, drug toxicity, cholestasis, and autoimmune liver diseases.
