Spanish term or phrase: Estafilodermia Psoriasiforme
To whom it may concern,

I am having some difficulty translating the aformentioned term. The medical term appears in a brief Spanish language article about forming a empathetic relationship between a doctor and their patient(s). I have not encountered this term before, and am currently trying to break down each part of the term in order to gain a better understanding of what it means in Spanish/how I would translate it into the target language

Term in context: Un paciente afectado de Estafilodermia Psoriasiforme (el enfermo tiene /profusión de escamas en todo el cuerpo era rechazado debido a su aspecto por familiares y amigos. Al preguntarle cómo se siente, dijo: "me siento leproso”.

Source text language: Spanish
