Abstract

We report a case of fibroblastic rheumatism (FR) in a 61-year-old woman. The patient showed sclerodactyly and polyarthritis that involved both her hands and feet joints. Levels of C-reactive protein and matrix metallopeptidase-3 were within normal range. We diagnosed her condition as FR according to both the clinical features characterized with the destructive change of multiple joints and the histological sample. This is the first FR published case of FR in an Asian individual, and 23 published cases were reviewed.
