Patients with pediatric psoriasis not at increased risk for cancer

June 16, 2017

Patients with pediatric psoriasis did not display a significantly increased overall cancer risk when compared with pediatric patients without psoriasis, according to recently published study results in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Researchers conducted a retrospective cohort study by obtaining data from the IMS LifeLink Health Plan Claims Database including pediatric psoriasis cases from Jan. 1, 1998, to Nov. 2, 2007, with data extracted through Jan. 31, 2008, to allow for at least 91 days’ follow-up.
