Brief Summary:

Interest of methotrexate in inflammatory rheumatisms was demonstrated since several years.

At present time,there is no effective treatment against digital arthritis. The investigators purpose to measure the efficacy of methotrexate on digital arthritis.

In this aim, two groups were compared. The first group receive 10mg/week of methotrexate administered in one shot (every Monday for example)during 12 months. The second group receive 10mg/week of placebo according to the same procedure
