Caption

Coloured X-ray showing erosion of both knee joints due to rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is one type of arthritis, a general term used to describe inflammation of the joints. The disease typically affects joints symmetrically: joints of the fingers, wrists, feet, ankles, hips and shoulders are also affected. The degree of severity varies considerably. Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed by a blood test that reveals the presence of the rheumatoid factor and by X-rays that show erosion of the joints. Anti-inflammtory drugs are used in treatment; severe cases may require replacement with an artificial joint.
