Understanding Psoriasis - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes thick, itchy patches of red skin with silvery scaling. The top two layers of your skin are called the epidermis and dermis. New cells at the bottom of the epidermis constantly move up and replace the older cells above them. Normally, it takes about a month for cells to make this journey. In psoriasis cells reach the skin surface in only six to eight days because of a problem with your immune system. Scientists think your immune system mistakes certain natural substances in your skin as foreign invaders. This causes your immune system to start a counter attack called an inflammatory response. Inflammation is a series of changes that happen in your skin including enlarged blood vessels, growth of more blood vessels, more immune cells in the area forming groups, and faster creation of new skin cells. Over time the process of inflammation becomes a cycle. Damaged skin cells signal more immune cells to come to the area. In turn the immune cells cause your skin cells to multiply rapidly and your skin to get thicker. This results in raised itchy inflamed areas called plaques on your skin. Scientists think that psoriasis is passed down in families through parts of your DNA called genes. You can develop psoriasis if you have these genes then experience certain triggers such as skin injuries, dry skin, infections, stress, smoking, and certain medications. If you have any questions about psoriasis, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

Jeanne Dolan, BSRN, AlNC

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."
