Paediatric rheumatic diseases, also called juvenile arthritis, is an umbrella term used to describe the many autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that can develop in children ages 16 and younger. Some paediatric rheumatic diseases affect the musculoskeletal system, but joint symptoms may be a minor or non-existent component. Paediatric rheumatic diseases can involve the eyes, skin, muscles and gastrointestinal tract as well.
