Plaque psoriasis may result from an imbalance in the immune system in which the white blood cells that protect the body from infection abnormally trigger a reactive inflammation in the skin. This abnormal reaction will also cause skin cells to grow faster than normal and to pile up in raised patches on the outer surface of the skin creating the raised plaque.
