Abstract

A 68-yr-old male with severe psoriasis developed megaloblastic anemia due to folate deficiency 3 months after the cessation of low-dose methotrexate therapy. The mechanism of megaloblastic anemia in this case was suggested to be multifactorial. The case report and a review of magaloblastic anemia associated with psoriasis are presented.
