Abstract

Obese children are at higher risk of developing psoriasis, and obesity severity is correlated with psoriasis severity. The relationship between obesity and pediatric psoriasis was explored in a well-defined population. Obesity and psoriasis coexist at diagnosis, but it is likely that obesity commonly precedes psoriasis in children.
