Abstract
Large lytic lesions, relatively asymptomatic, involving the femoral neck and the base of the head are described in two patients suffering from a classical seropositive rheumatoid arthritis. Histological examination failed to reveal signs of malignancy, infection or pigmented villonodular synovitis. There were no rheumatoid nodules but a chronic hypertrophic villous synovitis was found. Rheumatoid synovium may invade the superior extremity of the femur; this fact is important in the differential diagnosis of destructive lesions of the femoral neck in RA.
