Immunoglobulin (lgG, lgM and lgA) levels were studied in 50 patients of localized pustular psoriasis (LPP). Alteration of immunoglobulin levels was observed in 49/50 cases. IgG, lgM and lgA all were increased in 18 cases, lgG and lgA in 16 cases, lgG and lgM in 2 cases and lgA alone in 1 case. On the other hand, lgM alone was decreased in 11 cases, lgM and lgA both were decreased in 5 patients. IgG alone was raised statistically significantly in LPP. Increase in lgG was more in LPP with duration of disease upto 2 years / with duration of disease more than 2 years and in acropustulosis (AP)/chronic palmoplantar pustular psoriasis (Ch PPP).
