Abstract

100 patients above 18 years of age with chronic plaque psoriasis were studied with age and sex matched controls to assess association of metabolic syndrome. Hypertriglyceridemia( 59%vs31%)(p=.01),abdominal obesity(45% vs 39% (p=0.05 )and hypertension(39% vs 34%) (p=>0.05 )were more common in cases wheras diabetes (23% vs 29%) (p=>0.05) was more common among controls.On comparing body mass index psoriasis patients were significantly more obese (14% vs 1% )(p=<0.05). Metabolc syndrome was more common among psoriatic patients than controls(p=0.0005).Proportion of psoriatics with metabolic syndrome was much higher in this study (37%)when compared to Caucasian studies
