Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which is characterized by the formation of scaly, indurated, erythematous plaques. Three principal histologic features are seen in psoriasis: epidermal hyperplasia; dilated, prominent blood vessels in the dermis; an inflammatory infiltrate of leucocytes, predominantly into the dermis.

Chitosan-based sodium fusidate in burn wound infections
Burn is one of the most common and debilitating forms of trauma and demand immediate specialized care, especially in patients with grave thermal injury. Owing to subsequent burn infections and associated mortality, burns are a significant cause of concern. A burn patient is highly vulnerable to acquiring infection owing to multiple factors, including breach in skin barrier, availability of bacterial nutrients in the burn milieu, obliteration of the vascular supply to the burned skin, and systemic disturbances leading to immunosuppression.
