The cytological modifications of the horny layer cell population in psoriatic subjects during treatment with Cyclosporin A are described. They are studied by means of the cytoexfoliative method. The value of this technique is discussed, using it either for diagnosis, or for evaluating therapeutic efficacy of various treatments. The cytological findings are respectively compared with those of other psoriasis therapies, such as Methotrexate and RO 10-9359 (etretinate).
