We evaluated the impact of regular agonistic physical activity on psoriasis in soccer players of the Italian second league. Particularly, an observational cross‐sectional investigation was conducted by analysing a group of 323 Italian second league soccer players (consecutively enrolled during medical check‐up at training sessions) and 357 sex, age and body mass index matched controls (chaperones of patients attending the outpatient clinic of Department of Dermatology and Department of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of Naples Federico II) from July 2015 to May 2016. Our data may suggest that regular and intense sport activity might be an environmental factor which can positively influence psoriasis pathogenesis, thus limiting its outbreak.

Abstract

We evaluated the impact of regular agonistic physical activity on psoriasis in soccer players of the Italian second league. Particularly, an observational cross‐sectional investigation was conducted by analysing a group of 323 Italian second league soccer players (consecutively enrolled during medical check‐up at training sessions) and 357 sex, age and body mass index matched controls (chaperones of patients attending the outpatient clinic of Department of Dermatology and Department of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, University of Naples Federico II) from July 2015 to May 2016. Our data may suggest that regular and intense sport activity might be an environmental factor which can positively influence psoriasis pathogenesis, thus limiting its outbreak.
