Tobin, AM and Higgins, EM and Norris, S and Kirby, B (2009) Prevalence of psoriasis in patients with alcoholic liver disease. Clinical and Experimental Dermatology , 34 , (6) , pp. 698-701. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2230.2008.03140.x.

Excessive alcohol use has been implicated as a risk factor in the development of psoriasis, particularly in men. Despite this, little is known of the incidence or prevalence of psoriasis in patients who misuse alcohol.

In total, 100 patients with proven alcoholic liver disease were surveyed for a history of psoriasis and a full skin examination was performed if relevant.
