Rheumatoid nodulosis, a benign variant of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), is a rare condition characterized by multiple subcutaneous nodules and positive rheumatoid factor in the absence of systemic manifestations or joint disease. Asymptomatic nodules rarely require treatment, and are unlikely to recur after excision, except in cases in which RA develops. Here, we describe an unusual case of recurrent rheumatoid nodulosis in a 42-year-old female presenting with recurrent subcutaneous nodules on the plantar side of her left foot, which caused pain when walking. Nodules were initially excised to control symptoms; however, since the excision, the nodules have recurred twice in the absence of other RA symptoms.
