Lack of Evidence of Relationship Between Helicobacter pylori Infection and Psoriasis in Childhood

Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(11):1529. doi:

It is considered the cause of acute and chronic superficial gastritis and chronic atrophic gastritis.1 Recently, several reports suggested that H pylori could play a role in triggering psoriasis.1 This study was designed to determine whether H pylori infection could be found in a significant number of children and teenagers with psoriasis.
