Since most of the studies are mainly confined to cases reporting coincidence of psoriasis and celiac disease, the authors want to underline the utility of investigating the possible presence of an underlying celiac disease in normal practice for a better approach to the patient. It is necessary to carry out controlled studies on a large number of patients to evaluate the association between these two diseases and the benefits of a gluten-free diet, even when the intestinal symptomatology is not evident.
