Artropaticheskom - one of the most severe forms of the disease

January 2, 2014

 Artropaticheskom - this is one of the most severe forms of psoriasis that affects the joints. When launched untimely or inadequate treatment of the disease can lead to permanent disability. But the pain of articular psoriasis does not always happen. This form of psoriasis are ill more often than men.


The main symptoms

Arthropathic psoriasis (psoriatic arthritis) occurs more frequently in patients who already have skin manifestations. Articular psoriasis develops on average six years after onset. But there are cases when the joint damage began before the appearance of rashes on the skin or in conjunction with them.

This form of the disease occurs more frequently in men than in women. Artropaticheskom runs a chronic, worsening replaced by remissions (usually unstable). The main peak of exacerbations accounts for the cold season (winter psoriasis). Summer artropaticheskom form is much rarer.


The main features of artropaticheskom

The disease is very similar to rheumatoid arthritis Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications  Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications
 . However, there are also features:

  • mainly affects the interphalangeal joints of the fingers and nails; the skin over the affected joint becomes red; on one finger often affects several joints, it is like a sausage;
  • except interphalangeal affects several joints at the same time the process is asymmetrical in nature; Sometimes psoriatic arthritis Psoriatic arthritis - be attentive to his hands  Psoriatic arthritis - be attentive to his hands
   is generalized;
  • many patients with psoriasis inflammatory process extends to the big toe; Many patients complain of pain in the heel;
  • in the process may involve the joints and intervertebral lumbar and sacroiliac joints, which leads to ankylosis (immobility) of the spine; This process is very similar to ankylosing spondylitis - rheumatoid lesion of the spine;
  • During articular psoriasis undulating: severe exacerbation alternate with partial remissions; often worsening articular process combined with a skin rash; Over time, such a flow is greatly reduced range of motion in the affected joints; Sometimes artropaticheskom goes unnoticed and is detected with a substantial violation of the joints.

Significant violations of the joints accompanied by severe pain.



Artropaticheskom very easy to identify if joint damage combined with skin eruptions. But if there is no rash, the disease may well be confused with other types of arthritis. For example, X-ray examination revealed violations are typical for rheumatoid arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis - debunking myths about the disease  Rheumatoid arthritis - debunking myths about the disease

The inflammatory process is confirmed by the general analysis of blood (increased white blood cell count, accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate), but rheumatoid arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis - permanent debilitating joint pain  Rheumatoid arthritis - permanent debilitating joint pain
   in the blood are the same changes. The difference may be specifically skrinningovye tests that reveal rheumatoid arthritis (latex test and the response Vaaler Rosa) that psoriatic artriyate negative.



Treatment artropaticheskom during an exacerbation - it is the removal of inflammation, swelling and pain. Out of aggravation trying to restore the function of changes in the joints.

To reduce inflammation and pain, some pain medications will not be enough, although during the exacerbation of their well appointed, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and means, relieves muscle tension (mirelaksanty eg Mydocalmum). When the severity of inflammation and severe pain prescribed glucocorticoid hormones. NSAIDs and glucocorticoid hormones injected in the cavity sustavaov.

But to reduce inflammation is also required to suppress the autoimmune process - for this purpose appointed immunomodulators different groups, suppressing or immune process as a whole (metatreksat, cyclosporine), or modern immunomodulators selective action, which act directly on the broken chain immunity (efalizumab, infliximab, and others) .

Used to treat psoriasis and artrpaticheskogo retinoids (synthetic vitamin A derivatives) such as atsetritin. The mechanism of action of retinoids is not known exactly, but found that they inhibit cell proliferation (increased division) of the epidermal cells, regulate the process of keratinization, which is broken for psoriasis, have immunomodulatory effects on cells of the middle layer of the skin and stabilize the membrane structure of the cells.

Fully cured artropaticheskom impossible, but if properly selected patient treatment could be a long time in good condition with no loss of joint function.
