Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 28-year-old woman with uncomplicated psoriasis vulgaris presented with spinal hyperostosis and osteitis. The absence of peripheral arthritis, sacroiliitis, and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) raised the possibility that the spinal lesion was an extracutaneous manifestation of psoriasis. We review the association between uncomplicated psoriasis vulgaris and skeletal involvement.
