Ferrndiz C(1), Bordas X, Garca-Patos V, Puig S, Pujol R, Smanda A. Prevalence of psoriasis in Spain (Epiderma Project: phase I). 2001;15(1):20. RESULTS: The prevalence of psoriasis, similar in both sexes, was estimated to be 1. The worldwide incidence and prevalence of psoriasis is poorly understood.

The most common presentation was that of psoriasis preceding or occurring simultaneously with arthritis 2Further, we estimated the pre- and post-validation point prevalence by December 31, 2010. The post-validation prevalence of PsA in the psoriasis cohort was 17.3 (95 CI: 16. The prevalence of physician-diagnosed psoriasis and PsA confirm other population-based studies, also after adjustment due to misclassification of disease. Both forms were developed by the authors of whom one is an experienced dermatologist ( S) and two are experienced rheumatologists (ET and IP). We estimated the difference in the proportion of patients who used healthcare services, as a proxy for disease activity, between the hot and cold seasons and the difference in the standardised prevalence of comorbidities between severe and mild disease. Table 1 shows the age and sex distribution of patients with psoriasis and PPP. Results. One hundred fifty-three patients with psoriasis were included in the study. Greater impact of the disease on QoL was associated with male sex, young age of onset, newly diagnosed disease, facial involvement, and widespread disease. 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. A study that enrolled 140 patients with both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and 278 patients with cutaneous psoriasis only, obtained similar results using another questionnaire (PQOL-12, 12-Item Psoriasis Quality of Life Questionnaire).

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin. In twin studies, identical twins are three times more likely to both be affected compared to non-identical twins; this suggests that genetic factors predispose to psoriasis. Psoriasis vulgaris (also known as chronic stationary psoriasis or plaque-like psoriasis) is the most common form and affects 85 90 of people with psoriasis. It is often the result of an exacerbation of unstable plaque psoriasis, particularly following the abrupt withdrawal of systemic glucocorticoids. Results: The results of this study indicated that infection, stress, family history, blood calcium level, smoking, and number of white blood cells were risk factors for recurrence of psoriasis. AG model is used when researchers only want to estimate the overall rate of an event at different times. Other factor that affected the incidence of relapse was stress (P 0.05). In Table 1, we list the available Brazilian studies related to the epidemiology of psoriasis.

Gelfand et al. found that the prevalence of psoriasis in childhood in the UK was about 0. Most studies report no gender bias in pediatric psoriasis. Similar results have been found in a smaller insurance company database 119. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and psoriasis are immune-mediated inflammatory diseases with similarities in pathophysiology, and all can be treated with similar biological agents. Results. In total, 4493 adult patients were included in the study (1912 with RA, 131 with IBD, and 2450 with psoriasis). The male:female incidence ratio is estimated to be around 1:1.5 for IBD 10. RESULTS: Patients with psoriasis, and to an even greater extent those with psoriatic arthritis, were more frequently affected by symptoms and signs of temporomandibular disorders, including an internal temporomandibular joint opening derangement than healthy subjects. Local trauma, preceding mild inflammatory disease, and psychosomatic factors seem to play an important role in the incidence of psoriasis, while gender and age are considered irrelevant 1, 2, 4, 5. It is estimated that about one third of adults suffer from TMD symptoms (TMDs) 15. Bruxism was observed in a similar percentage both in psoriasis patients and the control group (47. African Americans and Caucasians had similar impacts on quality of life and treatment satisfaction based on single global questions. Although psoriasis is less common in African Americans than in Caucasians, it is not rare in either demographic and carries a substantial burden in both groups. The epidemiology of psoriasis in a dermatology clinic in a general hospital in port-of-spain, Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies. It is reported to occur with similar frequency in both sexes and is more common in temperate than tropical climates (2). The number of cases presenting annually is shown in Table 1.
