Psoriasis is a risk factor for hip-prosthesis infection.
Risk factors for hip and knee prosthesis infection have been described, but not psoriasis.
Eighty five infected patients from different centers and 202 non infected patients were included in a case-control study.
Fifteen of 85 infected patients (17.6%), and 2 of 202 (1%) non infected patients had psoriasis.
Odds ratio for infection in patients with psoriasis is 21.4 (4.7-195.5), and 39.7 (5.3-1718.8) in patients with hip prosthesis and psoriasis.
No significant difference was found in patients with knee prosthesis.
These data indicate that psoriasis is a risk factor for hip prostheses infection.
