Rheumatoid Arthritis Picture

Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disease which initially attacks the synovium, a connective tissue membrane that lines the cavity between joints and secretes a lubricating fluid. It is a very debilitating disease that can cause major joint deformities. The picture to the right is of a hand that is deformed from RA. You can see the malformed joints and how it causes the entire hand to become deformed.
