Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects people who are suffering from psoriasis. In psoriasis, red patches of skin topped with silvery scales are prominent in most people.

These symptoms can appear in any part of the body which may include fingertips and spine. The range of this disease can vary from relatively mild to severe form.
Psoriatic arthritis in the spine is called spondylitis. It causes pain in the back or neck and there may be difficulty in bending downwards. Psoriatic arthritis also can also form tender spots in the region where tendons and ligaments join to form bones. This condition is called enthesitis.

The exact cause of psoriatic arthritis is not known, but heredity plays a role in this disease. Further the immune system and environmental factors also play role in the development of psoriatic arthritis. Most researchers have a close look at the role of the immune system and they observed a number of similarities between the symptoms of psoriatic skin and a psoriatic joint. In both cases, the immune system is overactive which resulted in an abnormal rapid skin inflammation in the joints and the adjoining tissues.
