The factors that increased the length of hospital stay were in-hospital complications (p=0.001), surgical procedures (p=0.001) and age (p<0.001). The factors that were associated with an increased risk of presenting inhospital complications were age (OR 1.02), while in male sex (OR 0.57) was a protective factor. The factor associated with the risk of death was age (OR 1.02). The prevalence in health services found in adults with psoriasis was 0.38%. In hospitalized patients they had a mortality of 5.79%.
