Association between psoriasis and sexual and erectile dysfunction in epidemiologic studies: A systematic review

JAMA Jan 12, 2019

Molina-Leyva A, et al. – Investigators evaluated the available scientific evidence on the associations between psoriasis and sexual and erectile dysfunction in epidemiologic studies. They reviewed 28 studies representing 52,520 patients with psoriasis and 1,806,022 control individuals. They found that patients with psoriasis may be at a higher risk of sexual and erectile dysfunction vs a healthy population, independent of physical and psychological comorbidities. Among patients with psoriasis, a higher risk was noted for those with anxiety, depression, psoriatic arthritis, and genital psoriasis. Overall, they suggested that sexual dysfunction could be improved with biologic drug therapy.
