Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, or juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), is a common form of arthritis affecting children below the age of 16. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is usually exhibited in joint pain, swelling and stiffness. It can turn chronic in some cases, whereas other children may experience symptoms for only a few months. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis may involve one or several joints, and may cause fevers. Some types of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can have serious repercussions, such as stunted growth and inflammation of the eye.
What causes Juvenile Arthritis?
The cause of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is presently unknown, but it occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and cells. It is likely that heredity and environment play a role in triggering this form of arthritis.
What are signs of Juvenile Arthritis?
The most common signs of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis are pain, stiffness and swelling of the joints.
While the child might not complain of pain in the joints, you may notice that he or she limps, or is reluctant to use an arm or leg.
The child may appear to be clumsier than usual, or have difficulty with fine motor activities, particularly in the morning or after naps.
Joint swelling is typical, but is often more prevalent in larger joints such as knee. In some cases, it can trigger inflammation of the lymph nodes, rashes and fever. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is typified by periodic appearance and disappearance of symptoms.
