The results showed that Rheumatoid arthritis was the most representative of epidemiological profile of patients studied with 47.27 %. Cutaneous and phaneromucosal manifestations were present in 44.55 % (n=49) of patients. Systemic corticosteroids with 90, 91 %, are the standard treatment of cases of lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. The general clinical signs revealed 82 cases of weight loss.
