From Denmark: Psoriasis, With or Without Psoriatic Arthritis, Associated With Fatigue

Psoriasis is associated with fatigue, especially among those with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), according to a study published in the July issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Lea Nymand, from Bispebjerg Hospital and the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, and colleagues explored the characteristics of fatigue and its potential drivers among patients with psoriasis with or without PsA. A total of 2,741 adults with psoriasis (of whom 593 also had PsA) and 3,788 controls without psoriasis completed the Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory-20 questionnaire.
