Journal of Clinical Anesthesiology: Open Access Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disorder affecting individuals with an underlying genetic predisposition. The disease manifests following exposure to various triggers (e.g., infection, medication). The typical lesions are sharply demarcated, erythematous, scaly, pruritic plaques, which occur most often on the extensor surfaces of the knees and elbows, but may also affect the scalp and back. Other common clinical findings include involvement of the nails (e.g., pitting or discoloration) or joints, which generally manifests with arthritis of the fingers and lower spine. As psoriasis presents with several subtypes, the size, location, and severity of the lesions vary. The diagnosis is based primarily on clinical findings, but may also be confirmed with tests (e.g., Auspitz sign) or biopsy. Mild psoriasis is treated with topical agents such as steroids, whereas moderate to severe disease requires systemic therapy (e.g., PUVA, biologics).
