Abstract

Abstract: Introduction: Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory cutaneous disorder with significant impairment in the quality of life. Already published data also suggest that psoriasis patients are prone to develop different cardiological and psychological comorbidities. Aims and Objectives: This study aimed to find out the association of metabolic syndrome, risk factors, individual components of metabolic syndrome and the other related parameters in patients with psoriasis and compare it with non-psoriatic patients.  Materials & Methods: Institution based case control study including 101 patients of psoriasis & 90 controls. Data analysis statistically done by using t-test/ ANOVA test or chi square/ Fischer’s test.  Result: In this study, we found strong correlation between types of psoriasis (plaque type 76.47%  followed by erythrodermic type 14.71% of psoriatic patients with metabolic syndrome) and metabolic syndrome while no such association found with severity of psoriasis (PASI score) , different  demographic parameters with metabolic syndrome in both the groups. At the same time smoking and alcohol consumption were found to be significant risk factors for developing metabolic syndrome.  Conclusion: In our study, there is a significantly higher prevalence of metabolic syndrome in patients with psoriasis comparing to non psoriatic population while it failed to show any significant association between psoriasis and dyslipidemia.
