Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic inflammatory disease that is characterized principally by a polyarthritis, but can result in several neurologic complications involving both the central and peripheral nervous system. In addition, several immunotherapies used to treat RA have been associated with neurological complications. In this chapter, we review the characteristic neurological sequelae of RA as well as the possible neurological consequences of its therapeutic regimens.
