Cannot: Psoriasis-- like any other auto immune disease has a combination of genetic potential and environmental factors playing the key role in its cause. Sine genes play a big role, cure lies with genes too! Since there is no cure--- management is the key!

Found in Psoriasis: Approximately 40-50% of people with Psoriasis have elevated uric acid. It is reported to be due to high skin cell turnover and impaired uricolysis. It can be lowered with uricosuric drugs and gout attacks treated with anti-inflammatories. Report in N.I.H./NLM.
