Abstract:Summary Psoriasis comprises a host of abnormalities, and various aspects of the pathogenesis of psoriasis have been suggested to be of primary relevance. The aim of this review is to identity driving factors in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and to explore the dynamics of processes eventually resulting in a psoriatic lesion. In this review observations on the evolution from the symptomless skin to lesional skin in patients with psoriasis will be integrated with observations in various animal models of psoriasis.
