Psoriasis is a chronic disfiguring incurable skin disease. It has been associated with comorbidities under the skin such as obesity, multiple metabolic, cardiovascular diseases and psychological disorders. Previous research reported that bariatric surgery for obese psoriatic patients can improve psoriasis and its comorbidities. In contrast, we report a case of morbidly obese diabetic patient who develop psoriasis after having a bariatric surgery to reduce his weight and review the association between psoriasis and obesity.
