Special Issue "Psoriatic Arthritis and the Need to Personalize Diagnosis, Clinimetry, and Treatment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2023) | Viewed by 696
Psoriatic arthritis represents a condition whose clinical expressiveness can be extremely heterogeneous. The wide clinical variability often results in diagnostic pitfalls, hence the need for a personalized approach on multiple fronts: from the use of sophisticated imaging techniques, to clinimetry according to prevalent manifestations, to treatment. The high prevalence of coexisting fibromyalgia can complicate the evaluation of these patients.
With these issues as our focus, I am delighted to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, aimed at emphasizing the need for personalization in the setting of psoriatic arthritis.
Areas covered by this Special Issue (both original contributions and literature reviews are welcome) include, but are not limited to:
- The use of imaging techniques in the diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis and its major manifestations (synovitis, enthesitis, dactylitis, axial involvement);
- The clinimetric approach with reference to inflammatory manifestations and disease impact on quality of life;
- The burden of comorbidities, including fibromyalgia among them;
- Therapeutic personalization.
I look forward to your contribution.
Dr. Marco Di Carlo
