It revealed that 41% of patients achieved an ACR 20, 22% achieved minimal disease activity, 62% had an improvement in dactylitis
, and 25% had an improvement in enthesitis.
There have been various methods used over the years, although the standard that is currently considered the most specific is the CIASsification of Psoriatic ARthritis (CASPAR) criteria, which require the presence of inflammation in a joint, the spine, or entheses plus at least 3 points from the following factors: presence of current psoriasis (2 points) or a personal or family history of psoriasis (1 point), dactylitis
(1 point), pitting or ridging of the nails (1 point), a negative rheumatoid factor (1 point), and radiographic evidence of new bone formation (1 point).
In addition, dactylitis
was identified in eight patients (16%) and enthesis in 31 (62%) patients.
The studies also captured improvements in enthesitis and dactylitis
scores for patients with enthesitis and/or dactylitis
Fever abated by day 7, and after 30 days of IV ceftazidime, the nodules had involuted and the dactylitis
and arthritis had resolved.
Key words: Mumps, parotitits, dactylitis
, childhood, leukemia
The golimumab 100 mg dose significantly improved dactylitis
measured by percent change in dactylitis
score compared with placebo at week 14 (66 percent versus 5 percent; P = 0.
and enthesitis are typical features of psoriatic arthritis, and there is no known laboratory test that is diagnostic of the condition.
Proportion of subjects with dactylitis
Spondyloarthropathies are a group of diseases that present primarily with inflammation of the axial skeleton, peripheral arthritis, enthesitis, morning stiffness, dactylitis
, and acute anterior uveitis.
4-6) The clinical phenotype may be quite heterogeneous, including either oligoarticular (< 5) or polyarticular joint inflammation (often asymmetric), spondylitis, enthesitis (especially involving lower extremity tendon and ligament insertions), dactylitis
, uveitis, and inflammatory bowel changes, in addition to psoriasis and nail disease.
Treatment with Ustekinumab also Resulted in Significant Improvements in Physical Function, Enthesitis and Dactylitis
, and Plaque Psoriasis
