During one year survey, 77 psoriatic patients were hospitalized in the dermatology department of Razi Hospital. This comprised 19% of admitted patients in this period. 29% (n=22) of psoriatic patients had previous history of hospitalization. On admission, the mean age of patients was 32.8 years, the mean and peak age of disease onset were 26.46 and between 11-20 years, respectively. 14% (n=10) of the patients had a family history of psoriasis and 70% (n=7) of those with a positive family history had their age of onset under 20 years. Involvement of different regions was as follows: Scalp: 88% (n=68), nails: 53% (n=41) and joints (arthritis): 10% (n=8). Psoriasis was associated with scrotal tongue in 19% (n=13) and with geographic tongue in 10% (n=8) of patients. Regarding the medical treatment, the drugs which were used most frequently were tigason in 34% (n=41) and ditranol in 22% (n=26) of the cases.
