Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), a chronic inflammatory arthritis, affects about 10 % of patients with psoriasis with higher prevalence seen in patients with more extensive skin disease. Early identificatio

Without paid access to this possibly great review on the predictors of progression from Psoriasis to Arthritis, I can only surmise from the listed references that these are the risk factors:

  3. Indian race
  4. Larger body surface area with Psoriasis
  5. Onycholysis
  6. Obesity in early adulthood

  8. Alcohol and smoking (contradictory results depending on gender and intensity)
  9. Dysbiosis of skin and gut microbiome
  10. Longterm use of NSAIDs, Paracetamol, Corticosteroids

Physical trauma recorded in primary care is associated with the onset of psoriatic arthritis among patients with psoriasis

Methods A matched cohort study was performed using data from The Health Improvement Network (THIN). Patients with psoriasis exposed to trauma were randomly matched to up to five unexposed psoriasis controls based on gender, age, duration of psoriasis and the date of entry into THIN. Trauma exposure…
