The treatment is similar to measures used in RA, in addition comes phototherapy used.

The psoriatic arthritis occurs Beica. 30% of all psoriasis patients. The prevalence is increased in AIDS patients. The risk of arthritis increases with positive HLA-B27 or other specific alleles, as well as a positive family history. Etiology and pathophysiology are unknown.

Etiology and pathophysiology are unknown. Symptoms and complaints The psoriasis of the skin and nails may precede the joint involvement or succeed. The severity of the joint and skin disease often do not match. Also, the skin infection may be present in hidden places such as scalp, navel or gluteal cleft and escape the patient and the volatile examiner. The DIP joints of the fingers and toes are typically affected. An asymmetric involvement of large and small joints, as well as a spine and Iliosakralgelenkbefall are often present. Joint and skin symptoms may improve simultaneously and deteriorate. The inflammation of fingers and / or toes can lead to sausage-shaped deformities, which are not present in patients with RA. Rheumatoid nodules are missing. Remission of arthritis are more common, faster and more complete than in the RA, as well as the progression to chronic arthritis with deformities can be observed. A particularly awkward shape is the arthritis mutilans with massive destruction of the joints of the hands and feet and a telescopic shortening of the fingers and toes. Psoriasis (finger) 15 DV?
