Interleukin-36 Receptor Antagonist Deficiency (DITRA) with a Novel IL36RN Homozygous Mutation c.200G > T (P.Cys67Phe) in a Young Colombian Woman

The acute variant of generalized pustular psoriasis or Von Zumbusch psoriasis is characterized by the abrupt onset of numerous pustules, widespread erythema, and systemic symptoms representing a life-threatening condition. Deficiency of interleukin-36 receptor antagonist (DITRA) is an auto-inflammatory disorder characterized by sterile inflammation of the skin and has been related to GPP. Here we report the case of a young Colombian woman with relapsing-remitting–generalized pustular psoriasis with a novel IL36RN homozygous mutation establishing the diagnosis of deficiency of IL-36 receptor antagonist (DITRA; OMIM 614204).
A 19 years old Colombian female was evaluated at the outpatient psoriasis clinic in a third level hospital in the city of Cali, Colombia. The patient complained of having scaly plaques in the trunk and extremities with severe pruritus for...
