All current challenges and concerns associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the elderly are analyzed from the point of view of a practicing rheumatologist, including issues of terminology and diagnostics, the need to develop classification criteria for RA presenting at old age. This paper also discusses RA management in the elderly during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. A multicenter international study, initiated by the League of Eurasian Rheumatologists, can provide necessary insight to develop unified recommendations for RAP.
