Nail manifestations in Hong Kong Chinese patients with psoriatic arthropathy (PsA)

1 Introduction The classification criteria for Psoriatic Arthritis (CASPAR) was first proposed in 2006 and then developed as an internationally agreed criterion for diagnosing Psoriatic Arthropathy (PsA) [ 1 , 2 ]. It demonstrated 98.2% sensitivity and 99.5% specificity in detecting PsA in the Chinese population [ 2 ].
