Pustular psoriasis is a clinically heterogeneous entity of different, orphan disease subtypes, among which the most clearly defined are generalized pustular psoriasis, palmoplantar psoriasis, and acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau. Although phenotypically and genetically distinct from psoriasis vulgaris, these subtypes may be associated with plaque psoriasis lesions, establishing the rationale f ...
Psoriasis is associated with multiple co-morbid medical conditions. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationships between psoriasis and cardiovascular disease, psoriatic arthritis, mental health conditions, and immune-mediated diseases, respectively. A literature search was performed during the study period January 1, 2015 to December 18, 2018. Of 2,499 records identified, 28 met our ...
The management of psoriasis has evolved considerably over the past 100 years. This has occurred in parallel with our understanding of the pathogenesis of this common, complex and enigmatic disease. It should be celebrated as an outstanding example of successful translational research. With precise targeting of immune pathways for the treatment of psoriasis with new biologics and small molecules ha ...
The Woronoff ring is a ring-like hypopigmentation zone around regressing psoriasis lesions. Although it was first described more than 100 years ago, its aetiology has remained a mystery. Recent insights into the pathogenesis of psoriasis can now explain the origin of the Woronoff ring. Psoriasis involves an HLA-class I-restricted autoimmune response of CD8+ T cells against melanocytes in the epide ...
Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin disease caused by the interplay between multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. This review summarises recent progress in elucidating the genetic basis of psoriasis, particularly through large genome-wide association studies. We illustrate the power of genetic analyses for disease stratification. Psoriasis can be stratified by phenotype (common plaq ...
