In the past 20 years, earlier diagnosis and more intensive management have considerably improved the prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), with milder disease course achieved in particular in seropositive patients. In contrast, seronegative RA has remained largely neglected, and continues to be surrounded by uncertainties regarding its correct diagnosis, clinical phenotype, optimal treatment strategies and relevant outcomes.The purpose of this review is to summarise new insights about the pathogenic, clinical and prognostic peculiarities of seronegative RA that emerged during 2022, and that make this disease subset at least partially different from its seropositive counterpart.

Abstract

In the past 20 years, earlier diagnosis and more intensive management have considerably improved the prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), with milder disease course achieved in particular in seropositive patients. In contrast, seronegative RA has remained largely neglected, and continues to be surrounded by uncertainties regarding its correct diagnosis, clinical phenotype, optimal treatment strategies and relevant outcomes.The purpose of this review is to summarise new insights about the pathogenic, clinical and prognostic peculiarities of seronegative RA that emerged during 2022, and that make this disease subset at least partially different from its seropositive counterpart.
