by Iffat Hassan, Peerzada Sajad Ahmad

This book discusses comprehensive textbook of psoriasis. Psoriasis is a disease which is characterized by remissions and relapses and is associated with considerable psychosocial morbidity. Psoriasis Vulgaris is recognized as the most prevalent autoimmune disease caused by inappropriate activation of the cellular immune system. Recent burning issues in psoriasis, such as metabolic syndrome, psychosocial morbidity, childhood psoriasis, biological in psoriasis and non-pharmacological treatments are a special feature of this textbook. Although there are a handful of excellent textbooks available on the subject of psoriasis, but, all the aspects of psoriasis have not been addressed in those textbooks, hence a need was felt to contribute to the existing knowledge of psoriasis by writing a textbook with an attempt to focus on almost all aspects of the disease process. Dermatology as a subject has seen a sea change in the past few decades. This book consists of 46 chapters. This book discusses epidemiological aspects of psoriasis, genetic and familial factors in psoriasis, etiology and pathogenesis, clinical presentations of psoriasis, clinical presentations of psoriasis, effects of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, associations of psoriasis, management of psoriasis, methotrexate in psoriasis, and azathioprine in psoriasis. This book is very helpful for the students and teachers.
