An old woman with chronic palmar dermatosis, rheumatism, and nail changes
AbstractPsoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition with variable changes on the skin and nails, sometimes associated with osteoarticular manifestations characterizing the psoriatic arthritis. This arthritis may precede, follow, or be concomitant with the skin lesions of psoriasis. Unsuspected psoriatic arthritis may be misdiagnosed by other seronegative spondyloarthritis, mainly in primary care attention, and ominous outcomes are related to late and inadequate management. Therefore, diagnostic exercises with base on significant clinical and radiological images might contribute to enhance the suspicion index about these challenging conditions.
