Association between disease severity and body mass index in psoriasis patients enrolled in the Corrona Psoriasis Registry

Summary:
•Recent studies have shown strong association between obesity and psoriasis (PsO) disease activity that may lead to implications in disease management. •The objective of this study is to examine the association between body mass index (BMI) (an index for adiposity) and PsO disease severity in an observational cohort of PsO patients.
