Radiographic features of psoriatic arthritis are erosions, asymmetric involvement of the joints of the fingers and toes, resorption and pencil in the cup deformity, joint space narrowing, bony spurs, periostitis and asymmetrical spinal involvement.
Some characteristic radiographic markers seen with PsA include "pencil-in-cup" changes of digital joints, especially the distal interphalangeal joint (DIP), periostitis, joint ankylosis, osteolysis, and sacroiliac changes; however, these are more likely to be seen with advanced disease.
Chronic voriconazole therapy can produce a syndrome of painful periostitis, the etiology of which is a subacute fluoride toxicity.
