Arthritis, Juvenile

Common Name(s)

Arthritis, Juvenile

Juvenile arthritis is an umbrella term used to describe the many forms of arthritis affecting children ages 16 or younger. Not unlike arthritis which causes inflammation of joints, juvenile arthritis may also involve the eyes, skin and gastrointestinal tract.

No known cause has been identified for most forms of juvenile arthritis but as the disease's prevalence rises, researchers and doctors alike are working to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the differences between the different forms of the disease.
