Unlike symmetric psoriatic arthritis, asymmetric psoriatic arthritis does not affect the same joint on both sides of your body. However, any joint in your body can be affected by asymmetric psoriatic arthritis.

Asymmetric psoriatic arthritis usually affects anywhere from one to three of the joints of your body. These may be either small or large joints, such as your hip, knee or one or more of your fingers.

A sausage-like appearance of your toes and fingers is typical with asymmetric psoriatic arthritis. This form of the disease is also marked by your affected joints being swollen, painful, warm and red.
