Subject - medicine

Rheumatoid nodules are characteristic symptoms of the rheumatoid process. They present as firm, non-tender, subcutaneous nodules. These are commonly found at pressure points like the elbow or back of the forearm, usually at the extensor side of the joints. Nodules usually occur in chronic active cases of rheumatoid arthritis, and are commonly associated with a more severe course of the disease.
