The recent August 2015 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology had 2 interesting findings of note to our patients:
1. 15.5% of patients with psoriasis have undiagnosed psoriatic arthritis
2. Patients with rosacea are more likely to have dyslipidemia (e.g. high cholesterol) and hypertension, as well as coronary artery disease. Some data even suggests that oral tetracycline type antibiotics may lower the incidence of vascular events.
