The purpose of the study is to analyze the prevalence and severity of psoriasis according to the patient's somatotype. Material and Methods. The study involved 82 patients (39 women and 43 men) aged 20 to 60 years, suffering from vulgar and exudative psoriasis. The study of the structure of somatotypes of patients with psoriasis was carried out by measuring height-weight ratios, bone diameters and girth sizes, as well as skin-fat folds in accordance with the technique proposed by B. Heath and L. Carter. Individuals belonging to endomorphs, mesomorphs and ectomorphs were distinguished. The prevalence and severity of psoriasis was assessed by the PASI index. Results. The clinical characteristics of patients with psoriasis depending on their somatotype are described. Endomorphic somatotype was observed in 22, mesomorphic — in 37 and ectomorphic — in 23 patients. Conclusion. The results of the study showed that more severe psoriasis, estimated by the PASI index, and exacerbations of dermatosis 2 or more times a year are more common at endomorphs.
