Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis in up to one third of psoriatic patients. Clinically it's characterized from an insidious onset. To help clinicians screen for PsA, several screening tools have been developed. The psoriatic arthritis screening and evaluation questionnaire (PASE) is one of the most used in the Psocare units. The sensibility of PASE is of 83% with a cut off of 47 or greater. The aim of our study is to create an Italian self-administered questionnaire, lighter than the PASE, able to identify patients who need a rheumatologic consultation.

Abstract

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis in up to one third of psoriatic patients. Clinically it's characterized from an insidious onset. To help clinicians screen for PsA, several screening tools have been developed. The psoriatic arthritis screening and evaluation questionnaire (PASE) is one of the most used in the Psocare units. The sensibility of PASE is of 83% with a cut off of 47 or greater. The aim of our study is to create an Italian self-administered questionnaire, lighter than the PASE, able to identify patients who need a rheumatologic consultation.
