Deborah Louise Duncan, Gillian Lyall

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Psoriasis is a common skin condition that affects an estimated 3% of the population. In one third of cases, psoriasis will develop during childhood or adolescence. Juvenile psoriasis is also associated with other co-morbidities such as hyperlipidaemia, obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. Understanding this illness means that health-care professionals such as school nurses can help by providing schools with appropriate information about the condition, improving its management and providing education to help reduce stigma.
