Description Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of modern civilization and attacking people in every part of the world and people of every field are being affected. The data about the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis of sixty patients was collected by interviewing them in different hospitals of district Narowal. The relative occurrence and incidence of rheumatoid arthritis in different age groups was determined. The analysis shows the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis was more in males (55%, n=33/60) compared to females (45%, n=27/60). Rheumatoid arthritis was more prevalent in age group of 41-50 years (32%, n=19/60) and less prevalent in age group of 61-70 years (3%, n=2/60). In our sample population the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis by age group of 11-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60 and 61-70 was 10, 15, 28, 32, 12 and 3% respectively. In the developing countries the incidence of rheumatic diseases is frequently unidentified so there is requirement of investigations to know the exact rate and risk factor of this overwhelming disease.
