Abstract

Background and Design: Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease believed to affect renal functions. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is the most important indicator used to assess renal functions. The present study aims to measure the renal function of psoriasis patients via the technetium-99m diethylenetriamine pentaacetate (Tc-99m DTPA) method and compare the values obtained with those determined through indirect measurement methods, such as the modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) and chronic kidney disease epidemiology collaboration (CKD-EPI), considering the effects of systemic treatments and comorbidities.
