735

Paulina Núñez, Rodrigo Quera, Lilian Flores, Luis Contreras,

Leflunomide belongs in the group of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) used in the treatment of psoriatic, rheumatoid, and reactive arthritis. Approximately 20 % of patients will experience some adverse event, mainly weight loss, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. We describe the clinical, endoscopic, and histological findings in a patient with psoriatic arthritis (PA) who developed severe chronic diarrhea after drug use.
