Jaccoud's arthropathy in primary biliary cirrhosis

Jaccoud’s arthropathy (JA) is a deforming arthropathy, nowadays present mostly in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), which predominantly affects middle-aged women, is histologically characterized by chronic non-suppurative destructive cholangitis. The chief target of PBC is the liver. We describe a rare case of PBC with hand deformities typical of JA.
