Özet

Rheumatoid meningitis is a rare and serious complication of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with high mortality rate. Clinical importance of the disease is high because diagnosis is difficult, and the disease is treatable if diagnosed successfully. We present the clinical and cranial magnetic resonance imaging findings of 62-year-old female patient with RA who has been followed up for 4 years.
