About Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic Arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory arthritis that is typically seen in association with skin psoriasis, which are both autoimmune conditions. It causes painful joints with redness, heat and swelling in surrounding tissues that can lead to damage to joints if the inflammation is not controlled, especially those of the lower extremities, distal joints of the fingers and toes, the back and sacroiliac joints of the pelvis. Nail changes and dactylitis (sausage like appearance of fingers or toes) are two features that are characteristic of psoriatic arthritis, although they do not appear in all cases. The condition usually appears in people between the ages of 30 and 50, both men and women are equally at risk. Psoriatic arthritis is categorized into five types: distal interphalangeal predominant, asymmetric oligoarticular, symmetric polyarthritis, spondylitis, and arthritis mutilans.
