Perhaps: Radial deviation is unusual in most of the arhritides-ulnar deviation is more common, but another cause of metacarpophalangeal arthritis is calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease and hemochromatosis. A Rheumatologist or an Orthopedic Surgeon could advise in a specific case and do the appropriate tests.
