Hi,

Until now, there is no specific research project or scientific paper that shows the strong link between psoriasis and polycythemia vera. However, it can be related to genetic mutations which is found in participants involved in previous research papers.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sam Salahia, Dermatologist
