Abstract

Tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα) blocking agents are among the most promising new treatments for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, no data exist about the effect of these agents on extra-articular manifestations of RA. A patient is described with small vessel vasculitis that repeatedly responded well to treatment with the soluble p55 TNFα receptor fusion protein Ro 45-2081 (lenercept).
