Innate immunity and antimicrobial defense systems in psoriasis. Thank you to our reviewers Symptoms only develop if they are triggered by certain events, most frequently in children and teenagers, often after a throat infection due to streptococcal bacteria. This type of psoriasis is known as guttate psoriasis or raindrop psoriasis so named because it manifests itself over the body in the form of scaly droplet-like shaped patches. Numerous small red scaly patches quickly develop over a wide area of skin, although the palms and the soles are usually not affected. Some people will go on in later life to develop chronic plaque psoriasis.

More information Symptoms & causesDoctors & departments Appearance of biotechnological therapies has revolutionized the treatment of psoriasis, but patients who do not respond to these drugs (primary inefficacy) continue to exist, as well as patients who respond initially but lose the response with continuity of treatment (secondary inefficacy), patients who respond, but don't reach the desired magnitude of response (partial response) and patients who have to discontinue treatment due to safety reasons (intolerance or toxicity), these being the four reasons for inadequate response to a biological agent.27 Retention rates or persistence rates in a given biological agent are thus very useful in assessing the "added value" of therapy in daily clinical practice, since, on the one hand, they reflect the proportion of patients with adequate response and, on the other, provide data on effectiveness, since in clinical practice the effectiveness may be different from that obtained in clinical trials.28-29
