Short Description of the Lecture:
- Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) in Dermatology Setting
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory disease associated with psoriasis (PsO). Both disorders share common pathogenic mechanisms involving genetic environmental factors. Because PsO is typically present for years before symptoms of PsA emerge, dermatologists are in a privileged position to detect PsA early through regular screening of patients. It has been repeatedly reported that PsA is underdiagnosed n patients with PsO, which may be due to under-recognition of musculoskeletal symptoms by dermatologists.
