Abstract: A pilot study of the effect on quality of life of childhood psoriasis is presented. Of the children interviewed, 65% experienced stigmatization to a certain extent, 71% reported itching, and 43% complained about fatigue. Clinicians should pay attention to these items to initiate patient-tailored treatment.
