Was psoriasis mistaken for leprosy in the past?

Bob Calder  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Dear Chris,

Can you get someone to speak on the possibility of what we know as
psoriasis being mistaken for leprosy in the historic record
linguistically and objectively? I am also  interested in how they
adjust their data on leprosy looking at the differences between
prevalence based on historic documents and that based on skeletal
remains.

Best regards,

Bob

What do you think?
