Abstract: Immunomodulatory agents that target PD-1 and its ligand (PD-L1) are being increasingly used in the management of lung cancer. Potential immune-related adverse events include dermatological complications which mostly are of low grade severity. The use of immune checkpoint inhibitors may lead to the exacerbation of autoimmune conditions. We report a case of a documented psoriasis flare with anti-PD-1 treatment for lung cancer.
