ABSTRACT: Previous studies have proposed the association between pemphigus and several autoimmune diseases, but no large-scale study has been reported. To delineate the association between pemphigus and autoimmune diseases including psoriasis. A total of 1,998 patients with pemphigus and 7,992 control subjects were enrolled from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan from 1997 to 2010. The odds of comorbidities between these two groups were analysed by multivariate logistic regression. Compared with control subjects, patients with pemphigus were much more likely to have Sjögren's syndrome (odds ratio [OR]: 15.0; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.16-71.5), psoriasis (OR: 7.18; 95% CI: 5.55-9.29), systemic lupus erythematosus (OR: 4.46; 95% CI: 1.88-10.6), and alopecia areata (OR: 2.68; 95% CI: 1.26-5.67). According to gender-stratified analyses, however, the association between pemphigus and Sjögren's syndrome or alopecia areata was found to be significant only in the female patients. We confirm the association between pemphigus and some autoimmune diseases, including Sjögren's syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, and alopecia areata. In addition, we present the novel finding that patients with pemphigus have an increased risk of psoriasis.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Inflammation plays a prominent role in atherosclerosis and its complications. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate the associations of rosacea with cardiovascular disease risk factors and cardiovascular diseases from a nationwide population-based database. METHODS: A total of 33,553 patients with rosacea and 67,106 age- and gender-matched control subjects were identified from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan from 1997 to 2010. Multivariate logistic regressions were performed to compare the odds of comorbidities between the 2 groups. RESULTS: Dyslipidemia (odds ratio 1.41; 95% confidence interval 1.36-1.46), coronary artery disease (odds ratio 1.35, 95% confidence interval 1.29-1.41), and hypertension (odds ratio 1.17, 95% confidence interval 1.12-1.21) were significantly associated with rosacea. Coronary artery disease remained independently associated with rosacea after adjustment for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemia. Male patients with rosacea had higher risks for all comorbidities than female patients with rosacea. LIMITATIONS: The National Health Insurance Research Database does not contain information regarding rosacea subtypes or disease severity, or laboratory data. CONCLUSION: Patients with rosacea are more likely to have dyslipidemia and hypertension. They are also at increased risk of coronary artery disease after adjustment for cardiovascular disease risk factors.
