Is psoriasis more prevalent in men or woman? Psoriasis is prevalent in both men and women epidemiologically. It affects two to 4% of both men and women. They can begin at any age, including childhood. However, it peaks at onset at 15 to 25 years of age and 50 to 60 years of age. It tends to persist for most one's life, is relatively lifelong, and fluctuates and extend surface area of involvement and severity of the condition. It is particularly common in Caucasians, but can affect people of any race and ethnic background. There's also a familial component with HLA types that have been associated with psoriasis, as is evident from the fact that about one third of patients in psoriasis also have family members with this condition.
