Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious autoimmune disease which affects the skin and joints. It commonly causes psoriatic plaques, which appear as red scaly patches, to appear on the skin. The plaques are caused by inflammation and excessive skin production, leading to an accumulation of skin cells that eventually takes on a silvery-white appearance.
Psoriasis varies by type and degree of severity. There are five main types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, pustular, inverse, and erythrodermic. Around 80% of psoriasis cases are plaque psoriasis and most medications developed for the treatment of psoriasis have been evaluated clinically for this type. In addition, psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a related condition that eventually occurs in approximately 30% of psoriasis patients. While a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis can precede a diagnosis of psoriasis, by definition all psoriatic arthritis sufferers have psoriasis.
