Occurence of psoriasis and leprosy in a single patient is extremely rare with very few cases reported. Better knowledge of the pathogenesis of these two diseases has led to some understanding of this rare association. We report such an association in one of our patients. We also report the therapeutic dilemma faced in treating lepra reaction with steroids while preventing the acute flare-up of psoriasis.
