Abstract

Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis which affects the skin and musculoskeletal system. If not diagnosed early and treated effectively it can result in joint deformity and disability.

Further research aimed at identifying cases earlier in order to improve outcomes is currently being conducted.
