The presence of autoantibodies reacting with lamins A and C was demonstrated in sera from 2 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). One patient developed antilamin antibodies several years after being diagnosed as having RA; she was also found to have chronic active hepatitis. The second patient had severe nodular RA. We describe the other serologic findings in these 2 patients and discuss the relationships between antilamin antibodies and RA.
