Acute Rheumatic Fever: Subcutaneous Nodules, Wrist
Subcutaneous nodules of acute rheumatic fever are seen in this 8-year-old girl. Three painless nodules on the ventral surface of the wrist were noted after a 1-week history of migratory arthritis. Significant carditis developed subsequently, and the lesions disappeared in 3 weeks. Nodules associated with acute rheumatic fever more often occur on extensor surfaces at bony prominences and are usually associated with more severe disease.
