Photosensitive disorders should be considered in patients with psoriasis who have photosensitivity. We reported a rare case of psoriasis combined with systemic lupus erythematosus and subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus. A 27-year-old female presented with several annular plaques on the upper back for one month. Other dermatologic findings revealed erythematous plaques with mild scaling on the scalp. The patient also already has had psoriasis for 8 years. According to the American College of Rheumatology’s revised criteria, the patient met the diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus. We have also reviewed the literature about the treatment for psoriasis combined with lupus erythematosus.
