Arch Rheumatol. 2018 Nov 30;34(2):225-228. doi: 10.5606/ArchRheumatol.2019.7020. eCollection 2019 Jun.


In patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), subcutaneous nodules are the most frequently seen extra-articular findings that are seen in areas of extensor pressure. In this article, we present the case of a RA patient with accelerated nodulosis that started with the use of methotrexate and exacerbated with etanercept and leflunomide treatment.

Keywords: Accelerated nodulosis; anti-tumor necrosis factor drugs; methotrexate; rheumatoid arthritis.
