Özet

Objectives. AS and PsA share clinical and immunological features centred on enthesitis. However, a strong association between PsA and preceding injury has been recognized. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the entheseal damage seen by US is commoner in PsA patients than in AS patients.
