Psoriasis is known to be associated with inflammatory comorbidities. Coeliac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy caused by permanent intolerance to dietary gliadin, which is present in wheat, barley, and rye.(1) The disease occurs in predisposed individuals, and is characterized clinically by malabsorption and histologically by villous atrophy and crypt hyperplasia, which improves when the causal antigen is removed through a gluten-free diet.(1) We investigated the relationship between psoriasis and CD in Denmark.
