    There is great inter-patient variation in the course of the disease. Onset is
    insidious and the disease usually presents initially with non-specific symptoms
    such as fatigue, malaise, diffuse musculoskeletal pain and stiffness. Charac-
    teristically, at onset the patient presents with symmetrical small-joint polyarthri-
    tis in the hands, wrists and feet. Diagnostic criteria for rheumatoid arthritis
    include presence of morning stiffness, presence of arthritis in three or more
    joints, symmetrical involvement, rheumatoid nodules, serum rheumatoid factor
    and radiographic changes.
