Psoriasis Poses Danger for More Serious Complications
Date:4/3/2008

t should be addressed, as it may significantly impact a patient's overall emotional and physical well-being," Kimball said. "Another concern is that depression may be a contributing factor to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, which as we know is already an increased risk in psoriasis patients."

Several studies have found an increased risk of certain cancers in psoriasis patients, such as lymphoma and a form of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma. Some of these cancers have been associated with specific psoriasis treatments that suppress the immune system.

"Following the recommended routine health screenings for cancers and avoiding high-risk behaviors that increase the risk of developing some cancers, such as smoking, alcohol abuse, and intentional sun exposure, must be a high priority for psoriasis patients who may be at an increased risk for these potentially life-threatening diseases," Kimball said.

Kimball and the task force urged psoriasis patients to work with their dermatologists and physicians to outline an appropriate preventive program based on their individual medical history and known risk factors.
