Rheumatoid Arthritis: Swan Neck Deformity. Swan Neck Deformity is a classic feature of rheumatoid arthritis that is related to laxity and instability of the joint as the rheumatoid lesion destroys the supporting tissues. It is almost never seen in systemic scleroderma (SSc) unless it is in overlap with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Posted 06/02/11.
