Rheumatoid nodule is an uncommon finding in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A report is given on a case of RA which lasted for 15 years and nodules appeared diffusely in the skeletal muscles close to the fascia. These nodules had a histological structure similar to that found subcutaneously and a tendency to be confluent with colliquation necrosis resembling what was described in subpleural localization.
