Abstract There is increasing awareness that psoriasis is more than "skin deep." Several recent reviews focused on biomarkers have indicated the systemic dimension of psoriasis and the comorbidity that psoriasis shares with other chronic inflammatory diseases. Of emerging significance is the relationship to cardiovascular disease, which contributes substantially to patients' increased mortality. This article examines currently available evidence favoring the concept of a causal link between psoriasis and cardiovascular disease, and summarizes a report represented at the 2010 Annual Meeting of GRAPPA (Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis).
