Abstract

Psoriasis is one of the most common dermatological disorders. It is an immune-mediated chronic inflammatory disease that primarily affects the skin and the joints, and substantially reduces the quality of life. It occurs worldwide, with a prevalence of about 2% in developed countries. Today numerous studies are continuously published on psoriasis. Important progress has been made especially on its genetics, pathomechanism and comorbidity. In the past few years, several efficient therapeutic approaches have been developed and applied. With the appearance of biological therapies, the inflammatory process can be targeted more selectively than before. The paper reviews most recent data on the pathogenesis, immunological background, comorbidity and reduced quality of life associated with psoriasis, and presents therapeutic approaches with special focus on recent advances. The increased knowledge allows of a more efficient treatment and care of patients with proriasis, thus significantly increasing their quality of life.
