Abstract

The determination of rosette formation is, as the determination of rheumatoid factor (RF) content in blood, of diagnostic importance and is positive only in a certain percentage of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This study investigated whether the rosette formation correlated with clinical and/or laboratory data. Of 149 patients studied 57 had rheumatoid arthritis, 39 suffered from other autoimmune diseases and 53 from other diseases. Rosette formation was present in 50% of the RF positive as well as in 50% of the RF negative rheumatoid arthritis patients. Only in 7 out of 57 patients with rheumatoid arthritis were both tests negative. It was proved that the number of rosettes was higher in patients with recent onset of the disease, in patients with active arthritis and in the presence of an elevated ESR. (Stoppelman - Amsterdam)
