Inverse psoriasis can compromise genital skin folds as part of genital psoriasis, and it is one of the most commonly seen dermatoses of this area in both females and males 1. However, minimal scaling can be seen on the more keratinized regions of the genital skin 26, 27. Inverse psoriasis involves intertriginous areas (i.e skin folds of axilla, inguinal, intergluteal and inframammary regions). (less than twice the upper limit of normal) are to be expected during therapy, but these levels do not correlate with hepatic fibrosis.
Most cases can be treated in the outpatient setting. The pathophysiology and treatment of psoriatic skin disease and issues related to psoriatic arthritis are discussed separately. Estimates of the prevalence of psoriasis have varied across studies. Boyd AS, Menter A. Erythrodermic psoriasis. J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2012; 26:1354. Patients with early onset, or type I psoriasis, tended to have more relatives affected and more severe disease than patients who have a later onset of disease or type II psoriasis. Nail involvement may be present, particularly if psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is present. 2.8 years of their remaining 35 years of expected lifespan for no disease.

Patients with psoriasis can present with multiple levels of involvement and with different types of the chronic condition. 7 million Americans and an estimated 125 million people worldwide.6,2 It affects approximately 1. 17 The second most common clinical phenotype was palmoplantar psoriasis followed by flexural psoriasis.17 Kaur and co-workers reported the scalp (25 percent) as the most common first site of involvement followed by legs (20. Among the most common joints affected are the hands and feet (distal interphalangeal joints), and the spine.26 Psoriatic arthritis can affect virtually any joint of the body, producing a wide variety of arthritic changes and joint deformity. 26, 28.

Using Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) cases were graded into mild, moderate, and severe psoriasis. Exclusion criteria were pustular psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis, diabetes, obesity, family history of hyperlipidemia, renal and liver failure, and patients on retinoids or lipid lowering agents. Data also included weight, height, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, duration of psoriasis, type and severity of psoriasis, and presence of psoriatic arthropathy. Serum low density lipoprotein (LDL) was estimated using Friedwald s formula 11:. 1, pp. 2426, 2003. A typical psoriatic lesion is a well-demarcated erythematous plaque covered with white silvery scales, of variable thickness. Flexural psoriasis is often associated with fungal infection. The prevalence of inflammatory arthritis in patients with psoriasis is estimated at up to 30.6. This review reflects basic epidemiological data on Indian psoriasis patients to provide a comprehensive overview of psoriasis in India. There is a growing number of population-based studies providing worldwide prevalence estimates of psoriasis. The second most common clinical phenotype was palmoplantar psoriasis followed by flexural psoriasis. There are few reports in the literature on psoriatic patients and their QoL in Latin America. In the international literature, a range between 23 and 37 years has been reported,12 and in Spanish patients it has been estimated between 28 and 29 years,6,9 very similar to other European reports, with mean ages at onset of 27 in women and 29 in men. 23 Furthermore, psoriasis has been shown to impact patient QoL to the same degree as other more life-threatening disorders such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer,24 and this has been associated with depression24,25 and suicidal ideation.26 Psoriatic patients report physical discomfort, impaired emotional functioning, a negative body- and self-image, and limitations in daily activities, social contacts, outdoor activities, and work.
