Dermatologic Disease Prevalence
Scientific Questions Being Studied
Granuloma annulare (GA) is non-infectious skin reaction pattern that has been shown to significantly associated with hyperlipidemia, hypothyroidism, ischemic heart disease, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, association of GA with psychiatric comorbidities has not been well studied. Here, evaluate the association of GA with psychiatric co-morbidities in the All of Us database, a recently launched initiative by the National Institutes Health that aims to provide health data on over 1 million Americans. All of Us includes communities that have been historically underrepresented in research (e.g. gender/sexual minorities, rural populations, social/ethnic minorities, etc.) to allow for a more generalizable understanding of disease data.
- Disease Focused Research (Granuloma Anullare)
We extracted 231 GA cases using ICD-10-CM code L92.0. Each GA case was matched to four age-, race-, and sex-matched controls in the All of Us database. Odds ratios were calculated and reported at 95% confidence intervals.
To our knowledge, this represents the first study that analyzes psychiatric co-morbidities in GA patients.
Demographic Categories of Interest
This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
