Key Takeaways For the Management of Plaque Psoriasis


Experts in dermatology share closing thoughts on the management of plaque psoriasis.

This is a video synopsis of a discussion involving Mark Lebwohl, MD, Dean for Clinical Therapeutics and Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Manhattan, New York, and Saakshi Khattri, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, rheumatologist, and internist at the same institution.

Dr. Khattri and Dr. Lebwohl discuss advancements in psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) treatment paradigms. Dr. Khattri emphasizes the importance of early PsA diagnosis for optimal therapeutic outcomes. She recounts a case where early identification of PsA symptoms allowed for timely intervention with an anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy, resulting in significant symptom improvement and prevention of disease progression.

Dr. Lebwohl underscores the value of incorporating joint pain assessment into routine patient evaluations, highlighting its impact on treatment selection. He applauds the proactive approach taken by medical assistants at their institution in screening for joint pain, emphasizing its pivotal role in guiding therapeutic decisions.

Both panelists stress the transformative impact of early intervention in PsA management, leading to improved patient outcomes and reduced disease burden. They conclude by encouraging healthcare providers to prioritize early detection and intervention strategies in PsO and PsA care.

In closing, Dr. Lebwohl expresses gratitude to Dr. Khattri for her insights and contributions to the discussion, highlighting the importance of ongoing education and collaboration in advancing dermatologic care.
