🔎 乾癬常被誤解為黴菌感染,事實上是自體免疫造成皮膚慢性發炎,高市立聯合醫院與中山醫學大學共同研究發現人類乳突病毒(HPV)可能透過慢性發炎、干擾免疫系統增加乾癬的發生率,尤其女性及60歲以上感染HPV,相較未感染者增加31%及65%罹患乾癬之風險。醫師建議民眾自費預防接種HPV疫苗,以避免感染,尤其年輕女性。

Background: This study investigated whether patients with a history of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection are at increased risk of developing psoriasis.

Methods: We enrolled 66 274 patients with HPV infection between 1997 and 2013 from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database, and compared them with control individuals who had never been diagnosed with HPV infection (at a 1:4 ratio matched by age, sex and index year) in relation to the risk of developing psoriasis. Cox proportional hazards models were used to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs), with the control group as reference.

Results: The adjusted hazard ratio (aHR) was 1.177 (95% CI, 1.010-1.373) after adjusting for demographic characteristics, comorbidities, dermatology-related outpatient visits and medications. The HPV group had an increased risk of psoriasis compared with the control group in all of the different age groups. The P-value for interaction between age and exposure of HPV is 0.009 in our sub-group analysis.

Conclusions: A higher risk of psoriasis was found after HPV infection, and age acted as an effect modifier between the HPV infection and risk of psoriasis.

Keywords: Papillomavirus infection; cohort study; psoriasis.
