Psoriasis is a common chronic immune-mediated disease that presents primarily on the skin, but it’s often associated with other systemic manifestations affecting many body organs, particularly the joints.
It has been estimated that the incidence of psoriasis ranges anything from less than half of 1% up to more than 10%, but the most widely accepted figure is that psoriasis affects somewhere between 2% and 3% of the general population.
In these two episodes, Associate Professor Alvin Chong and Dr Tom Kovitwanichkanont discuss psoriasis with Associate Professor Peter Foley, a leading expert in the treatment of psoriasis.
Because psoriasis is such a large topic, this information is spread over two episodes. The first (Psoriasis – Part 1) discusses what psoriasis is, epidemiology, clinical manifestations, and comorbidities. The second (Psoriasis – Part 2) discusses the management of psoriasis.
