Group II -arthritis, which shows severe edema formation and severe cells infiltration and vascular dilatation (b), Group III -arthritis + methanol extract of Vitellaria paradoxa (VPME) 75 mg/kg, shows skin disorganization (fibroblasts and collagen fiber) and cells infiltrations (c), Group IV -arthritis + VPME 150 mg/kg, shows mild edema formation fibroblasts are well-arranged (d), Group V -arthritis + VPME 300 mg/kg, shows mild edema formation and cells organization without vasodilatation (e) and Group VI -arthritis + diclofenac-treated group (f)
