ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the association of C-reactive protein (CRP) and psoriasis in pediatric patients. Studies have determined that the growing levels of CRP may cause cardiovascular risk. Experts suggest for further study to address the relationship between inflammation, obesity, and psoriasis severity, and to establish better medication. Amy S. Paller, professor and chairman of Northwestern University Medical School, points out the vitality of accurate diagnosis of the condition.
