Romania: Coexistence of Psoriatic Arthritis, Atopic Dermatitis May Offer Treatment Insights

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and atopic dermatitis (AD) can coexist, and the presence of both conditions may mean special attention should be given to selecting optimal treatment, according to a study published online April 17 in the Journal of Personalized Medicine.

Georgiana Strugariu, from “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Romania, and colleagues examined AD in patients with PsA and receiving biologics for their active disease in a retrospective analysis of 64 patients with PsA. Participants were followed in an outpatient rheumatology department for up to 10 years.
