Elevated waist-to-height ratio associated with pediatric psoriasis

September 30, 2016

Children with psoriasis were more likely to have elevated waist-to-height ratios compared with those with noninflammatory skin conditions, while the two cohorts did not significantly differ in metabolic syndrome or BMI-determined obesity, according to recent study data.

Researchers in Australia conducted a prospective study from Feb. 7, 2014, to July 15, 2015, of 208 children (mean age, 8.9 years; 110 girls) in a pediatric dermatology clinic and two private consultant rooms of specialist dermatologists. There were 135 children with psoriasis and 73 control patients with no inflammatory skin conditions.
