The investigation of psoriatic arthritis on psoriasis patients and the optimization of the screening methods should be seen as a priority in the clinical practice due to the potential consequences involved in joint damage in psoriatic arthritis. It is already known the potential sequelae involved in joint damage in psoriatic arthritis and that they can be avoided by the identification of the disease’s predictors. Furthermore, the large range of psoriasis diagnosis and diagnosis of early stage of psoriatic arthritis should be reduced. In this review, we discuss recent literature with highlights about some predictive markers of early arthritis in patients with psoriasis.
