The following thesis consists of a description of the changes found in the bones and joints of the hands in twelve oases of chronic joint affection. The cases under consideration have all come under my observation during the past six months in Bermondsey Parish Infirmary. Eight of the cases are Rheumatoid Arthritis, and the remaining four are Chronic Gout. I have presented in this thesis all the cases of Rheumatoid Arthritis of which I have been able to obtain skiagrams, but the cases of gout have been carefully selected from among a number of cases which I have X-rayed. They are all undoubted oases of Chronic Articular Gout, and are given in order that a comparison maybe set up between the skiagraphia appearances of the bones and joints in the two diseases.
