Abstract: 【Abstract】 There are overlaps in pathogenesis between autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs) and psoriasis. In recent years, there have been many reports on correlations between psoriasis and AIBDs. Bullous pemphigoid is the most common AIBD associated with psoriasis, followed by pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus erythematosus and linear IgA bullous dermatosis. AIBDs occur after the onset of psoriasis in most cases, but simultaneously with or before the onset of psoriasis in some patients. This review summarizes correlations between AIBDs and psoriasis, as well as possible mechanisms.
