Psoriasis is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory skin disease that often occurs in patients who are overweight or obese. In literature the connections between obesity and eating disorders are well known, but few studies have investigated the link between eating disorders and psoriasis. We hypothesized that Eating Disorders (ED) can be considered a psychogenic cofactors, which contribute to the development of obesity and metabolic syndrome in psoriatic patients, who are frequently prone to psychiatric comorbidity.
