“The reason why psoriasis is of strategic importance in the field of skin diseases is that it has a substantial impact on the way people are affected. The disease, even in the less severe forms, completely changes the life of these people, changes the type of study, the type of profession, the type of recreational activity. It is a disease that affects about 2-3% of the population and in about one fifth of patients it manifests itself with highly impacting and disabling forms “. This was stated by Dr. Francesco Cusano, president of the Italian Hospital Dermatologists Association (Adoi), on the sidelines of the conference “Psoriasis: chronicity and patient needs” promoted by Apiafco – Association of Italian psoriasis friends of the Corazza foundation, held in Rome at the House of Representatives.
