The neurologic manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis are numerous, extremely variable and at times so striking as to simulate disease of the central or peripheral nervous system. An analysis of these clinical features in 293 unselected consecutive patients with rheumatoid arthritis and the results of detailed neuropathological studies are in progress. The present report deals only with the cerebrospinal fluid findings in this disease.
The cerebrospinal fluids examined during the course of this study were obtained from 101 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, 59 of whom suffered from peripheral joint disease alone and 42 from spondylitis with or without peripheral joint involvement.
