What is the difference between PsA and RA?

Psoriatic arthritis(PsA) is similar to rheumatoid arthritis(RA), however, it comes with skin problems. As they are similar in some symptoms, people usually get confused between these two types of arthritis forms. Both types of arthritis are caused by the autoimmune system attacking the cells of the joints which results in pain, swelling, and stiffness in joints. But they are different conditions caused due to different reasons and result in different symptoms and complications.

Common differences between psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis:

  1. PsA is asymmetrical in affecting different joints of the body whereas RA is symmetrical in nature. I.e. PsA can affect joints of either side of the body whereas RA affects joints of both sides of the body.
  2. PsA affects the axial spine while RA affects the cervical spine
  3. PsA causes complications like tendons, nails, and eye problems whereas RA causes rheumatoid nodules. PsA can result in other complications like diabetes, kidney problems, depression, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Carpal tunnel syndrome, long-term joint damage, cardiovascular disease, and cervical myelopathy are other complications of RA.
  4. PsA may be characterised by psoriasis whereas RA is accompanied by fever.
  5. In psoriatic arthritis In addition to joint problems, due to psoriasis, excess skin builds up in the form of patches.
  6. People with RA typically have RF proteins in their systems, but those with PsA do not have those proteins.
