Retrospective analysis was made of data on the use of methotrexate in elderly psoriatics. Pre-methotrexate assessment of patients induced liver function tests and a liver biopsy in 11 out of 14 patients. Post-methotrexate biopsies were done in 3 patients with total cumulative dose of methotrexate exceeding 1.5 gms. No significant worsening in the liver histology grade was noticed in the elderly patients. No significant side effect of methotrexate was noticed.
