Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease. It affects up to 40% of patients suffe- ring from skin psoriasis. Joint involvement is relatively heterogeneous. Some clinical manifestations are similar to those of rheumatoid arthritis, others are close to spondylarthritis manifestations and are therefore considered as part of this entity. Treatment depends on initial presentation (peripheral or axial) but often begins with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and methotrexate, followed by anti-TNFalpha if needed. New therapeutic op- tions are available or under evaluation, parti- cularly targeting cytokines involved in psoriatic arthritis (IL-12/IL-23 and IL-17).
