Image Description:

Knees are commonly affected by rheumatoid arthritis (RA) which is a systemic disease of the immune system. Shown here is the damage that is caused through RA and the wear and tear that forms on the cartilage of the knee. Damage can completely erode the cartilage surface leaving bone exposed. The call out shows the menisci in superior view and how these can also form tears on their surface leaving bone exposed. The cruciate ligament has also been shown to have complete tear although this is not due to RA, rather it can be caused by strenuous exercise or landing from a jump incorrectly for example.
