Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder with manifestations extending beyond visual presentation to encompass psychological burden. Though the association between psoriasis and mental health disorders in adults is widely accepted, there is inadequate research to generalize these findings to pediatric populations. In this review of the literature, we discuss the prevalence of anxiety and depression among pediatric patients with psoriasis in hopes of raising awareness of these associations and advocating for psychological screening and intervention in dermatology practice.
