    Dactylitis is diffuse inflammation of the digits and is so closely associated with psoriatic arthritis that it can be used as an outcome measure of it. In this Opinion article, the authors describe how imaging modalities and scoring systems combined with data from animal models can be used to understand the underlying anatomy and immunopathogenesis of dactylitis.

    Nakazawa and colleagues describe advances in our understanding of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis. These insights have already generated promising new treatments that target B cells, T cells and cytokines; potential novel approaches targeting additional cells or molecules are also discussed.
