Psoriatic disease including Psoriasis and Psoriatic arthritis
(Figure 1) are inflammatory disorders with significant overlap in their inflammatory
pathways. Both are due to cell mediated hyperimmune response and the
presentation are either Psoriasis which is purely a dermatological manifestation or with arthropathy which is an articular manifestation. It has been observed that several cases of chronic Psoriasis may develop arthropathy in their advanced stage of disease if not countered properly. In this clinical study an interdisciplinary approach is being applied to find out a successful outcome and also to propose it as a therapeutic regime in such a cases if found effective.
A group of patients was subjected for medication as well as Wet Cupping Therapy (WCT). The drug that was selected on the basis of its property mentioned in classical Pharmacopias indicated both as Musaffiyate Dam as well as anti-arthritic agents i.e. Majoon Chobchini.
