Objective: To study the neurological symptoms of psoriasis patients who used infliximab. Methods: We studied psoriasis patients who used infliximab in two referral general hospitals in Tehran from January 2013 to January 2014. We completed neurological symptoms checklists by questioning the patients. Results: Sixty patients with psoriasis were included in this study. Among them, 3 patients had sensory symptoms as side effect and one patient showed motor symptoms as side effect. There was no statistically significant difference between age, gender, and session count with the sensory and motor side effects ( P > 0.05). Conclusions: Neurological symptoms can be detected among 6 of patients under treatment with infliximab and there is no significant association between symptoms and gender, duration of drug use as well as age. © 2015 Hainan Medical University.
