Abstract

Both vitiligo and psoriasis are chronic inflammatory autoimmune diseases with genetic elements. To estimate the frequencies of psoriasis in vitiligo patients and vice versa and to compare them with healthy controls. A total of 1000 subjects were included, 250 of them had vitiligo, 250 had psoriasis, and 500 were healthy controls. Measurement of the frequencies of vitiligo in psoriatic patients and psoriasis in vitiligo patients was carried out. Thereafter the frequencies of both diseases were assessed in healthy controls. The frequency of vitiligo among psoriatic patients was compared with that of vitiligo in healthy controls. A similar comparison was done between the frequency of psoriasis among vitiligo patients with that in healthy controls. Other comparisons were performed between the frequency of family history of psoriasis among vitiligo patients with that in healthy controls and between the frequency of family history of vitiligo in psoriatic patients with that in healthy controls. The frequency of psoriasis among vitiligo patients was 15 (6%) and among healthy controls was 2 (0.4%); there is a statistically significant difference (P=0.001). The frequency of vitiligo among psoriatic patients was 5 (2%) and among healthy controls was 3 (0.6%); no statistically significant difference was found (P=0.16). The family history of psoriasis among vitiligo patients was 23 (9.2%) and among healthy controls was 20 (4%); there is a significant association (P=0.043). The family history of vitiligo among psoriatic patients was 24 (9.6%) and among healthy controls was 40 (8%); the difference is statistically significant (P=0.042). The present work has confirmed the close relationship between vitiligo and psoriasis.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 August 2023.
All research outputs
#2,984,338
of 25,382,440 outputs
Outputs from Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology
#203
of 905 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#52,579
of 327,503 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology
#5
of 16 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,382,440 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 88th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 905 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 23.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 327,503 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 16 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
