Abstract

Forty patients hospitalised for treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) were followed for a mean of 8.0 years. At the end of this time none had died and only 8% were in functional class IV. 90% received second-line therapy. There was a high incidence of skin rashes on gold but hydroxychloroquine was well tolerated. Patients with psoriatic arthritis had a better outcome than patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with the same regime.
