We present the case of a patient who had rheumatoid nodules of the vertebrae, which had resulted in bony destruction of the spine at 3 levels. Although there have been only 3 previous reports of such findings with confirmation by histologic analysis, we believe the condition is more common than has been thought. From a review of the literature, we found that similar clinical and radiographic features, as well as descriptions of rheumatoid granulation tissue invading the disc spaces, have been described in several subjects.
