MEDS2144 Extremity Arthritis

Playlist contributed by: Dr Tom Molyneux

This playlist includes examples of the following arthritides as they affect extremity locations.

  1. Degenerative joint disease (secondary)
  2. Degenerative joint disease (erosive osteoarthritis)
  3. Rheumatoid arthritis
  4. Psoriatic arthritis

Of particular interest is how these arthritic disorders affect the hands and feet.
Note the distribution of involvement of each.
How would you differentiate between them?
Where else in the body would you look for a finding that would assist in selecting the working diagnosis?

Did the age of the patient assist in your diagnosis?
What about clinical presentation?
