Rheumatoid arthritis rarely involves the cricoarytenoid joint. The possible consequent symptom includes hoarseness, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysfunctional dysphonia, and acute dyspnea. Etiologic diagnosis is possible with high-resolution computed tomography, which can show spacing of the articular cartilage, density and volume alterations, and subluxation of the cartilage. However, these radiologic signs are not pathognomonic for rheumatoid arthritis, and they should be combined with anamnestic data.

Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis rarely involves the cricoarytenoid joint. The possible consequent symptom includes hoarseness, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysfunctional dysphonia, and acute dyspnea. Etiologic diagnosis is possible with high-resolution computed tomography, which can show spacing of the articular cartilage, density and volume alterations, and subluxation of the cartilage. However, these radiologic signs are not pathognomonic for rheumatoid arthritis, and they should be combined with anamnestic data.
