Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory form of arthritis that is associated with psoriasis. A 54-yr-old male with chronic psoriatic temporomandibular joint arthritis and myofascial pain was treated using methotrexate and a myofascial pain protocol. Jaw pain improved after 3 weeks, however, tenderness to palpation of muscles remained. Comprehensive evaluation and multidisciplinary clinical treatment is required for the treatment of patients with psoriatic temporomandibular joint arthritis.
