Abstract

Background. Five to seven percent of patients with psoriasis suffer additionally from accompanying arthritis. Aim of the study. In this article, we review the current knowledge on clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the disease. Patients and results. Data are presented on the treatment of six patients with the immunosuppressant ciclosporin. Therapeutic results with this drug are superior to agents traditionally used for management of psoriatic arthritis. Conclusion. The therapeutic options have been enlarged by the introduction of new immunosuppressive drugs, particularly cyclosporin.
