This lady has been diagnosed as a case of sero-positive Rheumatoid Arthritis. We can see: 1. Crowding of carpal bones. 2. Reduction of radio - carpal joint space. 3. Reduction of carpo-metacarpal joint space. 4. Peri-articular osteopenia more evident around MCP joints. 5. PIP joints spaces are also reduced. Thank you.
