Who Gets Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic arthritis affects men and women equally, with a peak age of onset in the mid thirties.
It may, however, affect children and the elderly.
Most recent studies suggest that about 30% of those with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis.
About 10-15% of individuals with psoriatic arthritis present with joint involvement before the skin psoriasis is recognized.
Relatives of patients with psoriatic arthritis are more likely to get psoriatic arthritis than the general population.
