Psoriasis - Clinical Presentation

Although psoriasis starts with the involvement of skin, but it cannot be limited to just a skin problem. It has been linked to a number of other diseases, especially metabolic derangements and arthritis. The disease carries a huge socio-economic burden, and the diagnosis of psoriasis is purely based on clinical features. Depending upon the type of psoriasis, onset may be abrupt or slowly progressive. The course of the disease in the same individual is not uniform over time. It cannot be classified based on a single factor and generally involves differentiation of lesions based on the morphology of the lesions, degree of inflammation, distributing patterns of the lesions, and the extent of body surface involvement. Please share your valuable insights on the various clinical manifestations of the disease......

Very nice and useful information. Thank you for sharing. The cause of the psoriasis is not fully known. But it is thought to be related to an immune system problum with cells in your body. More specifically, one key cell is a type of white blood cells called a T lymphocytes or T cell. Normally T cells travel throughout the body to detect and fight of foreign bodies such as viruses and bacteria. Here the T cells attack healthy skin cells by mistake, as if to heal the wound or to fight the infection. Over active T cells trigger other immune responses. The effect include dilation of blood vessels in the skin around the plaques and an increase in other white blood cells that can enter the outer layer of the skin. These changes result in an increased production of both healthy skin cells and more T cells and other white blood cells. This causes an ongoing cycle in which new skin cells move to the outermost layer of the skin too quickly -in days rather than weeks. Dead skin and white blood cells cannot slough off quickly enough and buildup in thick scaly patches on the skin's surface. This usually doen't stop unless treatment interrupted the cycle
