Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is a group of rheumatic diseases that begins by age 16. Arthritis, fever, rash, adenopathy, splenomegaly, and iridocyclitis are typical of some forms. Diagnosis is clinical. Treatment involves NSAIDs, intra-articular corticosteroids, and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is uncommon. The cause is unknown, but there seems to be a genetic predisposition as well as autoimmune and autoinflammatory pathophysiology. JIA is distinct from adult rheumatoid arthritis, despite occasional similarities.
