Caption

X-ray of fractured tibia (left) and fibula (right) in the leg of a 40 year old female patient on long-term steroids for rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints, and corticosteroids are often used to treat the condition. However, long term use of corticosteroids can cause osteoporosis, which reduces the density of bones and predisposes them to fracture.
