Caption: Cartilage in arthritis. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the hip joint of a patient with arthritis. The cartilage in this image is showing a great deal of damage, threads are seen where it has worn away. Arthritis is a general term for many types of joint disease. For example, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder causing inflammation and joint destruction. Osteoarthritis is a disease of joint cartilage, associated with secondary changes in underlying bone which may be painful and ultimately impair and deform the function of the affected joint.
