ABSTRACT: A clinico radiological study based on 50 patients of psoriasis, diagnosed on the basis of morphology of the lesions and also by histopathological changes in the affected skin, over the period of 1 year is reported. The incidence of psoriasis was found to be 0.92 percent of hospital attending patients. The joint involvement was present clinically in 18 (13 percent cases). Radiological 22 (44 percent) cases had peripheral arthritis & 16 (32 percent) cases had spinal changes. In all the cases the rheumatoid factor was found to be negative. The joint changes were related to total duration of the disease but not to severity of skin surface involved The joint changes were associated with nail involvement in 72 percent & were preceded by skin lesions in all cases. The patients with joints involvement had abnormal faecal, fat d xylose excretion, raised serum Ig A, Ig G levels and raised serum uric acid levels in varying percentage.
