Screening and early diagnosis of psoriasis arthritis

Screening and early diagnosis of psoriasis arthritis

Zeitschrift für Rheumatologie 72(8): 764-770

Psoriasis arthritis (PsA) encompasses many diverse clinical symptoms. Epidemiological data about the prevalence in general, predisposed age groups, prevalence of joint, spine, enthesis, and extra-articular manifestations are very heterogeneous. Even for the PsA specialist the clinical picture is not always easy to differentiate from other overlapping or clinically similar disease entities. This paper tries to give some guidance on how to screen for and how to detect PsA early in the population of psoriasis patients on the basis of the Mainz PsA screening and early diagnosis algorithm.
