    Disease-specific treatment registries provide real-world clinical evidence and are particularly valuable where RCTs provide inadequate information. Using psoriasis registries as an exemplar, areas where registry data may be valuable include investigation of rare events; answering research questions that would be unethical in an experimental setting; and comparative effectiveness studies of conventional psoriasis therapies and biosimilars. Limitations include channelling bias and high proportion of missing data. The emergence of important pharmaco-epidemiological findings indicates that registries are an important source of evidence that will benefit patients with dermatological conditions.
