Psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (AD) are chronic and relapsing inflammatory diseases of the skin associated with various immunologic abnormalities. Psoriasis is driven by type 1 helper T and type 17 helper T cells, while AD is driven by type 2 helper T cells. Simultaneous occurrence of psoriasis vulgaris and AD in same families is not very rare but commonly missed entity. We are reporting nine cases of AD and psoriasis vulgaris occurring in same families.
