Assessing the impact of psoriasis and the relevance of qualitative research.

Abstract

Living with psoriasis is a lifetime experience. The lack of a cure combines with a peculiar public response of disinterest if not prejudice and stigmatization. Various factors account for changes in quality of life measures that seem independent from disease severity and effectiveness of treatment. Merging a qualitative and individual case analysis with assessment of quality of life would represent a direction for future studies.
