Psoriasis affects more than 3% of the general population and is associated with an increased risk of premature cardiovascular events and death. We assessed the prognostic role of coronary flow reserve (CFR) as a marker of coronary microvascular function in psoriasis patients asymptomatic for cardiovascular disease.
AbstractTo systematically review the role of ultrasound (US) in the assessment of the joint-enthesial-nail apparatus in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) or psoriasis (PSO) in terms of prevalence, diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring and treatment. A systematic literature review was conducted through medical databases (PubMed, Embase) and the grey literature up to February 2018. The main areas of application of nail US were first identified, allowing the development of research questions, which were rephrased following the PICOs methodology to develop inclusion criteria. Of the 585 studies produced by PubMed and Embase s...
In this report, we describe a case of a patient with a clinical history of systemic sarcoidosis and psoriasis who developed biopsy-confirmed perforating and necrotizing cutaneous granulomas after 12 months of treatment with adalimumab, a tumor necrosis factor-alpha–inhibiting, anti-inflammatory, biologic medication, prescribed for the patient's psoriasis. Although rare reports of a “sarcoidosis-like” reaction associated with select tumor necrosis factor-alpha agents exist, to the best of our knowledge, perforating and necrotizing cutaneous granulomas after treatment with adalimumab has not been previously...

Background: Scalp psoriasis is usually refractory to treatment. Excimer devices proved to be a promising therapeutic option in psoriasis. Greater efficacy of phototherapy can be achieved by a concurrent use of coal tar derivatives.
Introduction: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and psoriasis have been linked to cardiovascular disease. There is currently a deficiency in the literature regarding the prevalence of clinically important cardiovascular diseases that arise in patients with HS in a United States population. We sought to determine the odds of stroke, coronary artery disease (CAD), heart failure (HF), and peripheral artery disease (PAD) in patients with HS compared with patients with psoriasis and controls.

Background: The Auspitz sign, traditionally considered a characteristic feature of psoriasis, consists of pinpoint dotted bleeding, ensuing after scratching off the outer scales, due to the rupture of twisted, dilated, superficial capillaries. Modern noninvasive techniques that may enhance the diagnosis of psoriasis include videodermatoscopy (VD) and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM). The aim of this study was to provide a comparison between VD, RCM, and horizontal histopathological sections of the psoriatic plaques showing the Auspitz sign.
Introduction: Patients with psoriasis have lowered QoL and are especially at risk of social stigmatization and discrimination. Only few studies have investigated the impact on the QoL of partners of psoriasis patients.
