Summary of "An analysis of state and federal psoriasis malpractice litigation in the United States from 1954-2018."

It is estimated that 75% of dermatologists will face malpractice litigation by age 65. Furthermore, 28.7% of medical malpractice cases against dermatologists between 2006 and 2015 were decided in favor of plaintiffs with an average indemnity payment of $238,135 United States dollars (USD). Although psoriasis affects more than 7 million adults in the United States and impacts quality of life, limited information exists regarding psoriasis malpractice litigation. As such, the goal of this study was to characterize state and federal malpractice cases involving psoriasis in the United States. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
