Answer

Felty syndrome is a triad of RA, neutropenia, and splenomegaly. Patients with Felty syndrome are prone to serious bacterial infections that result in higher morbidity and mortality than those reported for other patients with RA. Prompt diagnosis and initiation of antibiotic therapy are required.
