    Article - En anglais

    We tested the traditional format of the American Rheumatism Association (ARA) 1987 revised criteria for the classification of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in a cohort of 220 subjects with drug reimbursement for chronic rheumatic diseases extracted from the National Sickness Insurance Register, in a community of 18,000O people in Finland.

    One hundred and nine of the 193 who consented to the study both met the new ARA criteria for RA and had disease onset after 16 years of age, giving a cumulative prevalence of 0.8% in the population of 13,300 over 16 years.

    The disease of 6 of them, however, fulfilled the criteria and clinical picture of some other rheumatic disease.
