Abstract:  Psoriasis is defined as a chronic autoimmune disease that presents on the skin. Despite being the subject of intensive research over the years, the precise etiology of psoriasis still remains unknown. Immune system dysfunction along with a genetic predisposition is thought to be at the core of the disease process. It presents as thick, scaly plaques and commonly affects the scalp, elbows, knees, arms, stomach, and back. Because of the chronic recurrent nature of psoriasis, medical treatment is a challenge. This article discusses some of the many treatments that are available for the treatment of psoriasis.
