Abstract

An unusual case of neuropathic arthropathy in a patient with tabes dorsalis is presented. The special feature consisted of multiple joint involvement in the upper limbs and spine. This uncommon location of Charcot joints can probably be attributed to the patient's occupation which involved heavy strains on his upper limbs.
