Abstract

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the most common connective tissue disease occurring during childhood, is characterized by chronic arthritis and may be associated with disability and blindness. The presentation, laboratory findings and prognosis of the disease differ significantly from those of adult rheumatoid arthritis. Current classification includes systemic, pauciarticular and polyarticular types, each having different therapeutic and prognostic implications.
