Rheumatoid arthritis is not a rare condition in east Iran. We have compiled a study of 76 patients with classic and definite RA in the Rheumatology Department of Ghaem Medical School in east Iran. All patients were admitted for clinical and serological evaluation. In terms of sex ratio, pattern of joint involvement, severity and nodularity, RA in east Iran did not resemble that which has been reported from the U.S. or European countries. Articular deformities and disability are rare and there was a striking absence of systemic non-articular complications of rheumatoid arthritis. Only a few patients showed rheumatoid lung disease. The severity of the radiological findings were mild in comparison to the results of Thould and Simon's report. 13
