Psoriasis is a common chronic skin disease. Its pathogenesis has intensively been investigated in the last 3 decades. In the 1970s, the observed increased proliferation of keratinocytes and their altered differentiation were considered to be the most important signs and causes of psoriatic skin...
Psoriasis is a T cell–dependent autoimmune disease of the skin and joints. Disease manifestation is orchestrated by proinflammatory CD4-positive T helper cells producing either interferon- γ (Th1) or interleukin (IL)-17 (Th17). These Th1 and Th17 cells interact with dermal dendritic cells,...
Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory and hyperproliferative skin disease with a genetic basis. While epidermal hyperplasia and altered keratinocyte differentiation are prominent features, considerable evidence indicates that psoriasis is immunologically mediated. Recently, the identification of...
The clinical picture of psoriasis is not uniform. Being one of the most common chronic inflammatory skin disorders, psoriasis may present in many different forms and may include extracutaneous manifestations. Classifications have been proposed based on disease onset or the clinical course of...
For a complex genetic disease, psoriasis has a high penetration within families and a concordance rate of up to 70% in identical twins. Despite this and the endeavors of many research groups for more than a decade, no susceptibility allele has so far been unequivocally identified, although about...
Psoriatic arthritis presents with a broad clinical spectrum of symptoms. Symmetrical polyarthritis with joint pain and joint swelling is one pattern of clinical manifestations that often indicates erosive progressive disease. Unlike in rheumatoid arthritis, the distal interphalangeal joints are...
Creation and maintenance of psoriatic plaques require a multicellular conspiracy by which prepsoriatic skin becomes infiltrated by a variety of immunocytes triggering changes in the behavior of epidermal keratinocytes and endothelial cells. These complex cellular events require coordination in...
