Caption

Close-up of psoriasis skin lesions at the site of a pacemaker implanted under the skin of a male patient. This is an example of Koebner phenomenon , where skin lesions appear at the site of trauma, in this case near the scar of the incision for inserting the pacemaker. Psoriasis is a condition in which skin cells are produced much faster than normal. The body cannot shed the cells fast enough, resulting in patches (plaques) of scaly, thick skin, which are often itchy and may become infected.
