Abstract

"Rhupus hands" is a phrase coined to describe one of the deforming arthropathies associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), because the clinical features are indistinguishable from those of rheumatoid arthritis. Herein, we report a case of rhupus hands with multiple synovial cysts arising in a 60-year-old woman with SLE.
