Abstract: The objective of this study was to establish the relation between psoriasis and physical trauma and the relation between psoriasis and the consumption of alcohol. We used the retrospective analytical investigation and as a source of information we used the observation sheet and the file of records. This investigation was made over a seven-year period (2002-2008), at the Municipal Hospital, the Dermato-Venerology Department in Arad, over a group of 186 patients. Among this number a series of data regarding the relation between psoriasis and the physical trauma that is the consumption of alcohol was issued. Analysing the group as a whole, we analysed the manner in which beginning of some cases have been influenced by skin trauma and the psoriasis was to develop in relation to this trauma.
