Are Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis CHT and Psoriasis Related?

Kiguradze et al Int.J.Derm Feb 21 2017

900,000 records reviewed. 9700 had Psoriasis, 1800 had Hashimoto’s. 41 patients had both. A significant association was found p<0.0001. Psoriasis should be added to the list of diseases associated with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Comment: I usually see only thyroid patients and if they have CHT first they usually dont get other autoimmune diseases. I will be looking for Psoriasis now.
