Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common debilitating rheumatological disorders. A subcutaneous rheumatoid nodule usually occurs in advanced cases of rheumatoid arthritis and is also a hallmark of the chronicity of the disease. They are also the most common extra-articular manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis. We present a case of a giant rheumatoid nodule, developed on the left elbow.
