Abstract
Onset of rheumatoid arthritis in an elderly patient is common, in fact more common than in younger subject. If the reality of true differences in clinical presentation between younger and older subjects remained discussed, the central point remains that the prognosis is not better in older patients. Finally, conventional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD) and biological treatments are as efficient and safe than in younger patients, and the same strict management objectives used for younger subjects must be applied in the elderly.
