Atopic Dermatitis Exposed | Video #6: Similarities and differences between atopic dermatitis and psoriasis


“Is the nonlesional skin in psoriasis also abnormal like it is in atopic dermatitis? And is atopic dermatitis also a systemic inflammatory disease like we think psoriasis is?” Lisa Beck, MD, and Emma Guttman-Yassky, MD, PhD, discuss the similarities and differences between atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.

Dr Beck is a professor of dermatology and the director of translational research at the University of Rochester Medical Center Department of Dermatology and Medicine in Rochester, New York. Dr Guttman-Yassky is an associate professor of dermatology and immunology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and director of the Center for Excellence in Eczema, the Occupational/Contact Dermatitis Clinic, and the Laboratory of Inflammatory Skin Diseases.
