Abstract

Objective: Nowadays, psoriasis is accepted to be an autoinflammatory/autoimmune disease. As a result of chronic inflammation, psoriasis is widely investigated for associated diseases and comorbidities. However, there are limited data about the effects of psoriasis on hearing functions. The aim of the study was to investigate prospectively if patients with psoriasis have sensorineural hearing loss and the effect of the disease severity on hearing levels.
