    Psoriatic arthritis
    Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the joints of the upper and lower limbs and/or spine, and occurs in 10-15% of patients with a skin condition called psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease characterized by excessive proliferation of the skin, resulting in skin cells in the affected areas to be renewed every 3 to 6 days, instead of every 28. This causes a flat velvety, scaly patches on the skin.
    There are several effective treatments to control the disease and to improve the quality of life of patients.
