Caption: Rheumatoid arthritis. Computer artwork of bones of the human hand, showing joints affected by rheuma- toid arthritis. Sites of joint inflammation due to arthritic disease are depicted as red hotspots. Three knuckles (metacarpo-phalangeal joints) are affected, as are phalangeal joints of two fingers. Rheumatoid arthritis is the most severe type of inflammatory joint disease, in which the body's immune system acts against itself. Apart from the hand, the feet, ankles, wrists, arms, hips and shoulders are commonly affected. The joints become extremely painful, and often deformed. Treatment includes anti-inflammatory and painkilling drugs, and joint replacement in the most severe cases.
