to other symptoms of the disease, also develop arthritis. What is psoriasis
and what is psoriatic arthritis? The answers in the following clip. Psoriatic arthritis is a relatively common form of psoriasis and characterizes a sub-group of psoriasis patients
who also suffer from arthritis. Psoriasis is
a chronic, auto-immune skin disease, in which the body’s immune system attacks itself,
or in this case, the skin, and causes skin cells
to grow and multiply at a rapid rate. As a result, immature skin cells
rise to the upper layer of the skin and cause skin lesions
typical to psoriasis, lesions with a silver,
red or white color. These lesions usually appear
on the knees, elbows or scalp, but can also appear
on all parts of the body. Some patients who suffer
from psoriasis, about one out of ten, will also suffer from arthritis, a state in which the body’s
immune system attacks the joints. The joint is the section
that connects the bones and in this case,
the immune system attacks the joints. As a result, an inflammation develops
within the joint which leads to the destruction
of the joint’s cartilage and bones in proximity
to the joint. These patients suffer from pain,
swollen joints, and restricted joint function. As the disease progresses, if the inflammation of the joint
is not treated, it could also cause disability and severely limit
joint function. It is important to note that
this disease has many variants. Some patients will suffer
from the disease quite severely with several affected joints
and significant loss of movement, while other patients will experience
a lighter form of the disease with only one or two affected joints
that are simpler to treat.
