Abstract39 psoriatic patients with arthropathy and a negative rheumatoid factor were analysed to find the types of arthropathy and psoriasis and also any associated bichemical changes which could indicate the risk of developing arthropathy. All 5 types of arthropathy were noted, though the asymmetrical mono or oligo articular type was the most common and psoriasis vulgaris with nail involvement was more commonly associated with arthropathy. A significant association between serum hypocalcemia and psoriatic arthropathy was observed.
