Can psoriasis be fatal?

Psoriasis is only fatal in rare cases when symptoms are not adequately managed. In severe cases, an infection can develop and if left untreated, can spread and become life-threatening. Similarly, if pustular psoriasis is not treated, it can develop into a life-threatening condition known as von Zumbusch psoriasis.
