Plummer-Vinson Syndrome with Mutilans Rheumatoid Arthritis

I recently came across some strange x-rays of a hand. At first, I thought the deformation of the bone and hand tissue was perhaps due to an accident of some sort, but the longer I looked at the x-ray, the less sense that made to me. After some research, I learned that what I was […]Read More
