Caption: Splint on arthritic finger. Plastic splint on the little finger of a 63-year-old woman suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. This is an autoimmune disease in which the antibodies of the immune system attack the lining of the joints. This causes inflammation of the joints and surrounding areas, resulting in stiffness, pain and swelling. Splints support the affected joints and help to keep them in the correct position. There is no cure, but rest and anti-inflammatory drugs may relieve the symptoms.
