This review highlights the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying psoriatic inflammation with an emphasis on recent developments which may impact on treatment approaches for this chronic disease.

We consider both the skin and the musculoskeletal compartment and how different manifestations of psoriatic inflammation are linked. This review brings a focus to the importance of inflammatory feedback loops that exist in the initiation and chronic stages of the condition, and how close interaction between the epidermis and both innate and adaptive immune compartments drives psoriatic inflammation. Furthermore, we highlight work done on biomarkers to predict the outcome of therapy as well as the transition from psoriasis to psoriatic arthritis.
