  1. Psoriasis is a risk factor for hip-prosthesis infection.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
