The coexistence of MCTD with psoriasis is very rare and results in a series of difficulties in diagnostic framing and therapeutic management of the patient, especially in those cases with inflammatory joint involvement, such as in the patient subject of this report.


KEY WORDS: Psoriasis - Arthritis - Mixed connective tissue disease - esophagus
