Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease that is frequently accompanied by comorbidities, including metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases, and depression. Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis that develops in patients with psoriasis and is associated with severe impairments to physical functioning, ability to work, and quality of life. At least 5% of patients with psoriasis, and possibly as many as 42%, develop PsA, making it one of the most clinically relevant comorbidities.

Delayed diagnosis may lead to progressive joint destruction and long-term disability. Thus, clinicians should be familiar with the key clinical features of PsA to enable early diagnosis. Do you know what signs to look for and the best treatment practices for PsA? Test your knowledge with this quick quiz.
