Abstract

BACKGROUND: Pruritus may emerge as affective or sensorial in psoriasis patients. It is not known whether the mediating effect of pruritus or disease severity on the quality of life is more pronounced. This study was conducted to determine the mediating effects and interactions between disease severity, pruritus and life quality in psoriasis patients.
