Conclusion

Scleromyxedema, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, dermatitis herpetiformis, and psoriasis are skin diseases associated with well-recognized systemic disorders that may result in significant morbidity and mortality. Although important progress has been made in understanding the physiopathology of these conditions, precise disease mechanisms remain unknown and treatment challenges persist. To improve therapeutic outcomes, dermatologists should be aware of these associations and pathogenic cofactors, in order to ensure that both skin and systemic abnormalities are properly addressed.[45]
