  Hi guys

always confusing for me... and for you guys?

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) = Adult-onset Still's?
why is it called "adult-onset"?

Classical Presentation: Fever, salmon-colored rash, lymphadenopathy, myalgias, FERRITIN... ev negative


----------------

Juvenile idiopathic Arthritis, which has 3 forms

1) Pauciarticular
few joints
2) Poliarticular
many joints
3) Systemic = Still's Disease (also FEVER and RASH first → joint manifestation)
systemic
starts out with fever and rash (also salmon colored rash)
--------→ can go to PAUCI or POLI


----------------

So what is the difference between the "still's disease" in the Juvenile idiopathic Arthritis category and the "adult onset still's disease"...

THANKS A TON!!!!

  Still dis. is one of types of JA.
it's present like an infectious disease.

juvenile form is in less than 16 yo but adult form is in older than 16 yo pts.
