You would need to create a fake italic small caps font, by slanting  
the small caps font pxsc provided with the pxfonts. That would  
include adding a new entry to /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/ 
fonts/map/dvips/tetex/pxfonts.map, such as:

rpxscsl Rpxsc ".167 SlantFont" <rpxsc.pfb

But then you would need to create accompanying metric and virtual  
font files (.tfm and .vf files), taking care of encoding issues (OT1,  
T1 or LY1), and then modify the provided LaTeX font definition files  
(.fd files).

Not for the faint of heart! fontinst might help you do this, I've  
never tried. See:


Hope this helps,
