Özet

Introduction: Psoriasis is regarded as a complex autoimmune disease with strong genetic background. Psoriatic patients suffer from many comorbidities including hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) may be a key player that triggers psoriasis and diabetes, hypertension and cardiac disease at the same time.
