We describe the case of a patient with psoriasis, peripheral and axial arthropathy, and upper lobe fibrosis. This association of findings has not, to the best of our knowledge, been described in the past. Pulmonary fibrosis is not found to be more common in people with psoriasis than would be expected in a control Veterans Administration population and, while this association may be coincidental, pulmonary fibrosis in psoriatic spondylitis should be searched for in other patients.
