Comorbidities are a significant burden for psoriasis patients, and this burden may be exacerbated in pediatric patients. PeDRA’s Psoriasis Investigator Group (PsIG) members and other multidisciplinary experts worked to develop the first set of pediatric psoriasis comorbidity screening guidelines in 2017.
The pediatric psoriasis comorbidity screening guidelines were published in JAMA Dermatology in 2017 (see publications page). A web app is now being created to guide health care providers in the use of these guidelines.
