Abstract

We report two cases of females with seropositive and deforming nodular rheumatoid arthritis. They responded well to TCZ therapy after failing to other anti RA therapeutics (DMRDs and biologics). The nodules disappeared following TZC in both patients but they reappeared in one patient after 5 months of cessation of the TCZ.
