Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The frequent occurrence of psoriasis with gastrointestinal system diseases indicates that psoriasis may also be associated with IBS. We aimed to evaluate the frequency of irritable bowel syndrome in patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
Material and Methods: Study included 111 patients with psoriasis, and 214 healthy volunteers. The presence of IBS in the psoriasis and control groups was evaluated according to the Rome III diagnostic criteria (Recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort at least 3 days/month in the last 3 months associated with two or more of the following: Improvement with defecation, onset associated with a change in frequency of stool, onset associated with a change in form (appearance) of stool). The participants were also asked about the presence of findings supporting the diagnosis of IBS. The participants were asked about the frequency of defecation, and the stool type was evaluated according to the Bristol stool form scale
Results: 41 (36.9%) patients in the psoriasis group and 27 (12.6%) controls were detected to have IBS( p 0.001). Passage of mucus, abdominal distension, and straining were found more frequently in the psoriasis group than in the control group (p = 0.023, 0.001, and 0.001, respectively). The mean defecation frequency per week was significantly higher in the psoriasis group than in the control group (p = 0.000). The mean value for the Bristol stool scale was 4.12 ± 1.13 for the psoriasis group and 3.72 ± 1.16 for the control group (p = 0.003).
Conclusion: The increased frequency of IBS and the findings supporting the diagnosis of IBS in these patients suggest that they have a tendency to develop IBS. The indication of a higher frequency of IBS in patients with psoriatic arthritis is another important outcome of the present study.

Keywords: Functional disorder; irritable bowel syndrome; psoriasis
