This article highlights recent advances in the immunology, epidemiology, and genetics/genomics of psoriasis. Advances sometimes generate more questions, and this article makes an attempt to point out where controversies might exist in the literature. Many of the articles mentioned were published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, but many articles from the broader scientific literature are also cited, to provide context and to add further validity for some of these key findings. Among the themes we explore are the identification of antigens in psoriasis, the co-morbidities of psoriasis, and novel integrative approaches to genome-wide association studies.
