Sažetak
The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of psoriasis on quality of life and psychological characteristics of patients. Sixty-one patient (25 male and 36 female) with diagnosis of plaque psoriasis participated in this study. During their stay at Naftalan, Special Hospital for Medical Rehabilitation they were referred to a psychological consult. Assessment was done through questionnaires concerning quality of life, patient’s personality, perceived social support and traumatic events. According to the results of our study, psoriasis has a substantial impact on patient’s life. Severe traumatic event in past 6 months experienced 54.09% of patients. Personality tests revealed increased neuroticism, mainly in female patients. Also, female patients reported about presence of indeterminate fear, shudder and tension, as well as elevated somatic anxiety and hysteria. Despite above mentioned data, patients evaluated their quality of life higher than perceived social support – 3.75 vs. 3.61. It is well known that quality of life is specific psychological phenomenon. Although more than 50% of our patients reported severe traumatic event in the last six months, it did not obviously influence to much on their quality of life. Regardless to high perceptive quality of life, psoriasis patients have increased psychoneurotic symptoms which are particularly expressed in female patients. Therefore, apart from medical treatment of skin lesions, psoriasis patients should have adequate psychological treatment and support from its environment.
