Does psoriasis always lead to psoriatic arthritis?
Some estimates suggest that no more than one in five people with psoriasis go on to develop psoriatic arthritis. However, some degree of joint damage may be present in up to two in five people within this group. In rare cases, it is also possible to develop symptoms of psoriatic arthritis without ever having experienced psoriasis.
