    Swan Neck Deformities

    Jaccoud's arthropathy (JA) is a condition characterised clinically by 'reversible' joint deformities such as swan neck, thumb subluxation, ulnar deviation, 'boutonniere' and hallux valgus, along with an absence of articular erosions on a plain radiograph, originally described for RA

    Z deformity consists of hyperextension of the interphalangeal joint, fixed flexion and subluxation of the metacarpophalangeal joint

    Heberden's nodes are hard or bony swellings that can develop in the distal interphalangeal joints (DIP) . They are a sign of osteoarthritis and are caused by formation of osteophytes (calcific spurs) of the articular (joint) cartilage in response to repeated trauma at the joint

    Gottron's sign or Gottron's papules is an erythematous, scaly eruption occurring in symmetric fashion over the MCP and interphalangeal joints


    The heliotrope or "lilac" rash[3] is a violaceous eruption on the upper eyelids and in rare cases on the lower eyelids as well, often with itching and swelling

    Shawl (or V) sign is a diffuse, flat, erythematous lesion over the back and shoulders ina 'V' or a 'Shawl' distribution, which worsens with UV light

    Battle's sign, also mastoid ecchymosis, is an indication of fracture of posterior cranial fossa of the skull, and may suggest underlying brain trauma. Battle's sign consists of bruising over the mastoid process
