文献摘要

Abstract
    Two cases of subcutaneous soft tissue infection in 30 RA patients treated with tocilizumab are reported. In both patients, local redness, swelling, and heat were observed around the affected site. WBC spikes and such local findings were suggested to be clinically useful for the early detection of low-grade subcutaneous infection in RA patients whose disease is tightly controlled with tocilizumab. Of note, the C-reactive protein (CRP) level and temperature lacked clinical utility for such detection.
