Psoriasis is a chronic disease of the skin, which often persists life-long. The skin shows typical erythematous plaques, sometimes adherent or confluent, covered with white or silvery shiny scales usually without itching. The lesions can cover the whole body, but typically they are located on knees, elbows, head and eye brows. The cause of psoriasis is found in disturbances in the normal development of skin-forming cells. The life time of epidermal keratinocytes is shortened, leading to an increased proliferation and various histological changes in the epidermis.
The aetiology of psoriasis is still not completely clarified. Meanwhile the genetic predisposition has been proven scientifically. The course of the psoriatic condition is extremely heterogeneous and both its initial eruption as well as the frequency of recurrences are generally influenced by various internal & external factors such as: anxiety or stress, metabolic and hormonal dysfunction, drugs, etc.
