Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common inflammatory joint disease, and is the one most often associated with severe physical handicap. It is three times more common among women than men. Characteristically, the disease affects the small joints of the hands and feet. Management of the feet in rheumatoid arthritis requires articular emphasis if a crippling loss of foot function is to be prevented. An holistic approach is desirable. Close collaboration between the podiatrist and other members of the rheumatology team is paramount if appropriate management of the rheumatoid foot is to be provided.
