Background Psoriasis is an important systemic inflammatory disease that often leads to severe vascular diseases. This study was launched to determine if joint involvement affects incidence of vascular comorbidities in psoriatic patients. In addition, potential vasculo-protective effects of methotrexate in psoriatic patients were also evaluated. Method A population-based retrospective cohort study was conducted using the Taiwanese National Health Insurance database spanning from 1996 to 2006. Acc...

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of methotrexate and retinoid on risks for developing cerebrovascular disease among psoriatic patients. A population-based nested case-control study was conducted using the Taiwanese National Health Insurance database. Cox proportional hazards models were adopted. The hazard ratio (HR) of newly developed cerebrovascular disease was 1.28 (95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.162–1.413; p < 0.0001) for psoria...

Although the pathogenesis is still not clear, some authors proposed that decreased melanosome synthesis rate may underlie this disorder. We describe a 56-year-old fema...
