Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is defined by well-established diagnostic and classification criteria. Enthesitis has been suggested as the initial involvement for triggering the pathological process. We aim to present an isolated Achilles tendon enthesitis Psoriatic Arthritis patient and discuss whether an isolated-enthesitis subtype of PsA has not been considered in those abovementioned criteria. We also aim to discuss how joint ultra sonography would help to show this evidence.
