Objectives: To evaluate clinical and radiographic patterns of cervical spine affection in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Methods: This cross sectional study included 30 PsA patients, who were examined clinically and had radiographics of the cervical spine, sacroiliac joints and both hands and feet. Results: Cervical spine disease was evident clinically in 46.7% and radiographically in 20% of PsA patients, with no significant correlation between radiological and laboratory abnor- malities. Also, there was no significant correlation between peripheral arthritis and cer- vical spine affection. Conclusion: Cervical spine disease is not an uncommon clinical and radiographic finding in patients with PsA.
