Psoriatic arthritis (PSA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that can be progressive and can be associated with permanent joint damage and disability. The diagnosis is made mainly on clinical grounds based on the findings of psoriasis and inflammatory arthritis of the joints. Though we have many reports of Temperomandibular joint (TMJ) involvement in psoriasis (Ps), patent generally complain pain in other joints as a first arthritic problem. Here is a case of Ps presenting TMJ arthritis as first articular complaint with clinical signs and symptoms. Early identification of PsA will enable the patients to be treated early and agressively which requires a collaboration between oral physician, dermatologist and rheumatologists.
