Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation, pain, swelling of joints and also around tissues of joints, mostly in wrists and fingers. RA can also produce inflammation in lungs, pericardium, pleura, sclera, nodular lesions, and most common under the skin. Patients with autoimmune diseases have antibodies in their blood that target their own body tissues, where they can be associated with inflammation.
