Will Psoriasis Be Passed on to the Next Generation

Psoriasis Pass on to the Next Generation,Psoriasis One of the important factors of pathogenesis of psoriasis is gene, and psoriasis do have the feature of heredity to be passed on to next generation. However, psoriasis is different from the other diseases, such as albinism, color blindness, Down syndrome and other types of genetic disease.

The modern medical research shows that psoriasis is a polygenic disease. What is a polygenic disease? Polygenic disease means that there are multiple genes involved in the occurrence of the disease, on the other hand, there is an important aspect of environmental factor. For example, schizophrenia is a polygenic disease, patients with a variety of possible genetic cause of the disease in their body, therefore they are more easy to get disease compared to the normal people.

When patients are influenced by certain environmental factors, such as a suddenly environment change, or a big mental strike, which all can lead to the occurrence of schizophrenia. Although psoriasis has a genetic cause, but it is not completely determined by genetic factor. Statistics show that only about 30% psoriasis patients have a family medical history, while the 70% other patients have no clear family history.

Many patients want to know incidence rate of the next generation, we can also understand the mind of the patients. But we have sadly to tell the truth that there is no effective way to accurately predict the probability. The two aspects of genetic factors and environmental factors all involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis, and it is difficult to accurately measure which aspect accounted for a larger percentage. In clinic, there are a lot of psoriasis patients give birth of healthy children who haven’t got this disease the whole life. However,some patients get psoriasis within five generations there have no clear family medical history of psoriasis. Therefore, we still don’t have a general rule to indicate the heredity rate, we still need a further study.

The external symptoms are similar for every psoriasis patient, actually there are many kinds and the therapies vary from people to people. If you want a further knowledge, you can consult the online doctor.
