After compensating for a wide range of possible variables, the researchers found that severe psoriasis raised the odds of heart attack by 24 percent, but no such significant rise was noted among people with a mild form of the disease. Odds for stroke were raised by 45 percent for those with moderate or severe psoriasis and by 19 percent for those with mild psoriasis, the study found.

Rates for the potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation also rose by 51 percent in those with moderate or severe psoriasis and by 22 percent for those with mild disease.
