Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)?

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints.

RA can also cause inflammation of the tissue around the joints, as well as in other organs in the body. Autoimmune diseases are illnesses that occur when the body’s tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. It is more common in women than men.

While rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic illness, meaning it can last for years, patients may experience long periods without symptoms. However, rheumatoid arthritis is typically a progressive illness that has the potential to cause joint destruction and functional disability. In some patients, chronic inflammation leads to the destruction of the cartilage, bone and ligaments, causing deformity of the joints.
