Diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis

The diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis is mostly clinical and based on history.

Most patients are likely to the known cases of psoriasis and at a later stage experience involvement of joints.

The hallmark of Psoriatic arthritis is an asymmetrical pattern of digit involvement.

The inflamed joints are swollen and have a purplish- red discoloration.

Along with the joint inflammation, psoriasis may be visible on the skin of the joints.

The nail changes may be observed in many patients.
