Alopecia Areata
The body as we all know has an immune system. This immune system is made of various tissues and cells, principal among which are the white blood cells. In short, white blood cells or WBCs are chiefly responsible for protecting the body against the development of infection and various other diseases. The white blood cells constantly police the body and neutralize or eliminate undesirable cells, organisms, microbes and materials. At times, inexplicably, they attack the normal cells of the body. Such a state of affairs is referred to as auto-immunity and diseases resulting are called auto-immune diseases. Depending on the cells and organs involved auto-immune diseases can range from the banal to the fatal. Auto immunity is something like police brutality, a condition where the defender offends

Alopecia Areata
It is derived from French word “pelede” meaning patchy hair loss. It is characterized by rapid and complete loss of hair in one or more, round or oval patches, usually on the scalp, beard area, eyebrows, eye lashes and less commonly on the other hairy areas of the body. The incidence is 0.1-0.2% with a projected lifetime risk of 1.7%.

Psoriasis
.  All this results in localised areas of excessive skin production that gets heaped up and flakes away. When seen under the microscope, the skin with psoriasis. In addition the block vessels in the skin are dilated and thin walled as opposed to the narrow think walled block vessels in the normal skin hence the psoriasis patches look pink  Because of the change in the epidermis and the dermis, the epidermis overlying the blood vessels will have become very thin and scratching lead to this layer being easily torn, resulting in a raw area.  All this happens because the genes meant to control and regulate skin production and growth are unable to do it properly and hence the skin performs abnormally resulting in what is seen as psoriasis patches.  Whenever any treatment is given, the abnormalities listed above are reversed for while, ie a  remission is induced.  As the genes cannot be corrected, with currently available medicines, cure cannot be assured.  That  may change in a few years with the advances in genetics.  You can read more about the recent advances in the genetics of psoriasis at www.psoriasis.org which is also the most genuine site for all information on psoriasis. Recent research indicated that psoriasis is likely disorder of the immune system.  This system includes a type of white blood cell,  called a T cells that normally helps protect the body against infection and disease.  Scientist now think that, in psoriasis, an abnormal immune system causes activity by T cells in the skin.  These T cells trigger the inflammation and excessive skin cell production seen in people with psoriasis.

Psoriasis
What exactly happens in the skin with psoriasis? The diagram (fig 1) below gives a very simplified view.  Please stop at the end of every sentence and look at the diagram for clear understanding.  The skin has 2 layers.  The upper layer is called epidermis and the lower-layer is called dermis.  The epidermis is made of cells and the dermis is made of fivers.  Most of the changes in psoriasis are in the epidermis.  The lower most layer of the epidermis called the basal layer and it produces the rest of the epidermis, this happens with the basal cells dividing and pushing the cells towards the surface of the skin from where it invisibly sheds and is washed away while bathing and cleaning.  The basal layer cell takes about 4 weeks to reach the top.  In psoriasis this happens in 4 to 5 days, which is because a normal basal cell divides into 2 in 100 hours whereas the psoriatic basal cell divides into 2 in 36 hours.  The normal skin has a single layer or dividing cells whereas the psoriatic skin has 2 or 3 layers of dividing cells.  In the normal skin 60% of the cells are in the dividing phase as against almost 100% in psoriatic skin.

20 to 25% of patients with psoriasis get joint pain and about 7% get joint swelling and deformity.  This is because the same thing that happens in the skin also happens to the joint lining.  About 30% get involvement of the nail, because the tissue that produces the nail is derived from the skin.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is unpredictable in its behavior, meaning that it is hard to say in a given individual with freshly diagnosed as to how his or her skin will behave.  It is conforting to know that of all the people who have psoriasis, 70 to 80% will have localized psoriasis, meaning involvement of less than 20% of the body surface area.  Psoriasis remits i.e. clears with treatment and recurs.  Once treated, psoriasis stay away for a period ranging from 2 months to a year or so, and then comes back I the same or different area.  It would be reasonable to say that 60 to 70% of people with psoriasis will enjoy remissions of around a year once the patches are cleared.  The remaining may enjoy longer remissions, almost all dermatologists will know of patients who have had remissions of 5, 7, 10 or even 30 years.  A small number may require constant attention to keep their skin clear and prevent it from interfering with their day –to-day activities.  Upto 59% of patients with psoriasis get spontaneous remissions, viz the patches disappear without any treatment,  however, immaterial of whether the remission is spontaneous or treatment induced, recurrences are the rule in most people with psoriasis.  If one were to cleqar of lesions, the remaining will be on the way to a remission are recurrence.  This means that having psoriasis implies setting aside 10 to 30 minutes a day for skin care in addition the regular time set aside for toilet and grooming.

Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a genetic disorder of the skin that effect 1% of the population, which means in Bangalore with a population of 60 lakhs, there would be 60000 people with psoriasis.  By genetic disorder is meant a disorder resulting from defect in the gene and not necessarily herediatary.  Many people with psoriasis may have another family member with psoriasis.  Through a genetic disorder, psoriasis begins in 80% of the people who get it after the age of 30 about 10% get it before 30 years of age and 10% after 60 years of age.  Any age factors seems necessary for the gene to express itself.  If one parent has psoriasis, the chance of the child getting it is about 16% and if both parents have it, the risk is around 50% or over.
