Authors: Stephan B, Augustin M Abstract The recently expanded approval of some TNF‑α blockers for the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis in pregnancy has facilitated therapy of this group of patients with approved drugs. To date, there are no evidence-based structured therapy recommendations for these psoriasis patients with the result that the uncertainties of the treating physicians usually lead to individual decisions. On the basis of our clinical experience and the currently valid approval for systemic therapeutics, we have developed a therapy algorithm that enables an interdisciplinary, str...

Conclusions: Herein, we report the first occurrence of nanophthalmos in the Roma population. We have identified pseudodominant inheritance for this phenotype caused by a novel variant in PRSS56, representing a possible founder effect. Despite advances in genetic technologies such as exome sequencing, careful phenotype evaluation in patients from an isolated population, along with an awareness of population-specific founder effects, is necessary to ensure that accurate molecular diagnoses are made.
