Abstract

Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (RS3PE) is an unusual inflammatory arthritis with unknown pathogenic mechanism, and is characterized by an acute onset of symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema of the hands or feet. Numerous diseases are associated with RS3PE, including neoplasia, infection, Parkinson's disease, and other rheumatic diseases. Neoplasia is the most common condition associated with RS3PE. We report a case of RS3PE that occurred following acute intracranial hemorrhage in an 80-year-old man with a 20-year history of hypertension.
