Psoriatic Arthritis Information

Information about psoriastic arthritis, its diagnosis and treatment.

Psoriatic Arthritis (PA) is a form of arthritis which affects some 10-20% of people with psoriasis (although some with PA show no skin symptoms of psoriasis). It can be highly debilitating if left untreated, so if you suspect that you might have PA, it’s important to see a qualified rheumatologist (specialist in arthritis) as soon as possible, in order to get it diagnosed and treated.

Since many treatments for PA can also be used to treat just the skin manifestations of psoriasis (such as some DMARDs), this page will be devoted to just information about PA itself, for the most part. For particular treatments, see the appropriate pages of this site.
