Rheumatoid arthritis Animation - Etiology, Signs and Symptoms, Pathology, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disorder characterized by joint pain, swelling, and synovial destruction. RA predominantly affects middle-aged women. The condition can also cause various extra-articular manifestations such as rheumatoid nodules and pulmonary fibrosis. Diagnosis is mainly based on clinical features (e.g., morning stiffness, symmetrical joint swelling) and laboratory tests (e.g., anti-CCP). X-ray findings (e.g., soft tissue swelling or joint space narrowing) occur late in the disease and are therefore not typically used for diagnosis. Early intervention with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) plays a decisive role in successful treatment. RA is not curable, but early effective treatment may help offset severe complications (e.g., permanent damage to the affected joints).

Signs and symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis - Dr. Prashanth Jain
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease of small joints of hands and feet which cause synovitis and deformities and is a very painful condition. This disease is classically characterized by periods of remissions where the patient is absolutely pain free and comfortable with deformity of hands and feet he has. Periods of exuberation, where the disease gets progressed leading to inflammation of the joints, swelling, low fever, severe pain which again leads to further deformities of the joints. Typical features of Rheumatoid arthritis are involvement and deformities of small joints of hands and toes, large joints are very rarely involved, when they are involved disease is of severe category. Patient normally has morning stiffness. Few patients have some modules in their hands then they have loss of appetite, their bones are weak, they break at minimum injury and are painful.
Rheumatoid Arthritis of the hand - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of rheumatoid arthritis, the etiology, signs and symptoms, the diagnostic tests and indications, and the treatment options and prognosis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis involves the synovium of the joints. The condition of rheumatoid arthritis will result in deformities. Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs in females more than males. There may be a hereditary component with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis has spontaneous remissions and exacerbations. The disease can have a systemic nature.
Pain and stiffness of joints especially in the morning (morning stiffness). Rheumatoid Arthritis is typically polyarticular, bilateral and symmetrical and most commonly affects the hands and feet.
x-rays show periarticular erosions at the time of diagnosis. Osteopenia and minimal osteophyte formation favor the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease. The disease has two components: immunological reaction. Increased degradative enzymes. The IgM (Rheumatoid factor) is produced by the plasma cell as ana antibody to the native IgG, which is altered in RA. 70% of patient with RA have rheumatoid factor positive. Leucocytes are attracted to the immune complex forming deposits over the inflammatory surface of the synovium. These leucocytes ingest fibrin and immune complex and is called the Rheumatoid cells. The leucocytes release lysosomal enzymes that cause acute inflammatory response and tissue necrosis as well as inflammatory mediators ( IL-1, IL-6, TNF alpha). The chondrocytes respond to stimulation by TNF- alpha, IL-1 and other inflammatory mediators causing cells to become activated and secrete more metalloproteinases which lead to cartilage damage. The synovium becomes hypertrophied (pannus), showing intimal hyperplasia and infiltration by plasma cells and lymphocytes.
Stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Early: acute: hot swollen tender joints (synovitis)
•Flexor sheath synovitis
Complicated: digital vasculitis, ecchymosis, skin atrophy, nodules.
•Swelling of MCP joints
•Lateral slippage of extensor tendon ruptures
•Ulnar deviation of fingers
•Xrays show destruction of MCP with subluxation, ulnar deviation and wrist destruction.
•Finger deformities: Mallet, boutonniere, Swan neck
The thumb is also involved. These changes occur due to proliferation, inflammation and hypertrophy of the synovium. Involvement of the distal radioulnar joint is usually associated with rupture of the extensor digiti minimi.
25% of patients with RA will have subcutaneous nodules on extensor surfaces of elbow and forearm. Nodules are often multiple and seen along the ulnar margin of the forearm or pulp of the digits. Vasculitis is more common in patients with SC nodules, it is strongly seropositive disease (aggressive) with less favorable prognosis.
•Synovitis: splint and medical treatment
•Joint space narrowing, bone erosions and osteopenia: synovectomy.
•Joint destruction/fixed deformity/ loss of hand function: surgery based on condition
Before operating on RA patients, x-ray of the cervical spine is needed because the patient may have subluxation of C1-C2.
Metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty of the fingers usually results in decreased extensor lag and improvement of the ulnar drift.

Signs you may have rheumatoid arthritis
If you have chronic pain or aching in your joints, you could have an auto-immune and inflammatory disease called rheumatoid arthritis. We talk to an expert for ways to recognize symptoms.
Signs of rheumatoid arthritis can show up 1-2 years before diagnosis
류마티스 관절염, 진단 1~2년 전 신호 나타나
A new study shows patients with rheumatoid arthritis experience functional disabilities for as long as two years before they're diagnosed.
The Mayo Clinic say difficulties with daily activities like dressing, walking and eating can be seen in patients a year or two before diagnosis.
The researchers say this may reflect an accumulation of symptoms between the time of onset and the time required for experts to diagnose patients.
They added their study shows the importance of early treatment, …as they found increased levels of difficulty with daily activities continued even after patients began treatment.
Symptoms can include joint pain or swelling, …but 40 percent of patients experience symptoms that don't involve the joints …like fatigue, fever and loss of appetite.

What Are The Symptoms Of Rheumatoid Arthritis? - Manipal Hospitals India
Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include:
Tender, warm, swollen joints
Joint stiffness that is usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity
Fatigue, fever and weight loss
Early rheumatoid arthritis tends to affect your smaller joints first — particularly the joints that attach your fingers to your hands and your toes to your feet.
As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders. In most cases, symptoms occur in the same joints on both sides of your body.
About 40 percent of the people who have rheumatoid arthritis also experience signs and symptoms that don't involve the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can affect many nonjoint structures, including:
Rheumatoid arthritis signs and symptoms may vary in severity and may even come and go. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission — when the swelling and pain fade or disappear. Over time, rheumatoid arthritis can cause joints to deform and shift out of place.
