Abstract

Background Psoriasis is a chronic, recurrent skin disorder characterized histologically by cutaneous inflammation, increased epidermal proliferation, hyperkeratosis, angiogenesis, abnormal keratinization, shortened maturation time and parakeratosis. Data on the involvement of trace elements in the pathogenesis of psoriasis is limited.Methods The elements namely Na, K, Ca, P, S, Mg, Cu, Zn, and Fe were analyzed in the serum samples of mild and severe psoriasis patients with a control group using inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). Patients were assessed as per standard clinical diagnostic criteria and classified into mild and severe psoriasis groups using Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) score.Results In mild psoriasis, the levels of K, P, Cu, and Mg were increased significantly (p
