Rheumatoid Arthritis: Subcutaneous Nodules, Fingers
Multiple subcutaneous nodules can be seen in the fingers of this patient with rheumatoid arthritis. Subcutaneous nodules are most frequently found on the dorsal forearm surface distal to the olecranon process, but they also may appear on the fingers, over the Achilles tendon, on the occiput, and at other pressure points such as the ischial tuberosity and sacrum. Although subcutaneous nodules are most commonly described in rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatic fever, they may also occur in other rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus and mixed connective tissue disease. This patient also displays marked synovial proliferation with subluxation of metacarpophalangeal joints of the left hand.
