WHAT IS PSORIASIS?
Psoriasis is a disease characterized by red scaly plaques that result from over-proliferation and inflammation of the skin due to an intense immunological dysfunction in the skin. Not only does the skin appear abnormal, but often there are symptoms of itching, burning, and discomfort. Psoriasis is associated with arthritis in a significant number of patients. If untreated, this can be deforming and disabling. Recent data suggest that cardiac disease can be a side effect of this generalized inflammatory process and often occurs as part of a systemic metabolic syndrome.
