Cardiovascular disease incidence is increased in patients suffering rheuma-toid arthritis, The latter is a risk factor so important as the diabetes. In a prospective study, 40 patients with RA were compared with age- and sex-matched controls Results:- The intima-media thickness was significantly higher in patients with RA higher than control patients (0.759 mm vs 0.558 mm; P < 0.001). We found a higher TR, in patients with RA. But, C-HDL and C-LDL were are not significantly different betwen the both groups Conclusion:- Increased attention to cardiovascular risk in RA will be necessary to reduce the excess CV mortality and morbidity in RA patients. It appears that the excess risk that is observed in the RA population can be explained, in part, by promotion of CV disease through increased systemic inflammation associated with RA.
