Rheumatoid arthritis, systemic juvenile

Common Name(s)

Rheumatoid arthritis, systemic juvenile

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, also known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis, is the most common type of juvenile arthritis affecting children under the age of 16. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, meaning your body’s immune system, which usually protects your health by attacking foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses, mistakenly attacks your joints. However, it differs significantly from adult rheumatoid arthritis. Some children may experience symptoms for only a few months while others may experience them for the rest of their lives. No known cause has been identified. The most serious cases of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis may include growth problem and eye inflammation. About 1 in 1000 children are affected in any given year with twice as many girls than boys.
