OBJECTIVE To investigate long term the average changes in craniofacial morphology in a group of Norwegian juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients with mixed diagnosis from 6 to 35 years of age. A matched group of healthy individuals was included as controls. MATERIAL AND METHODS Craniofacial development in 38 females and 16 males with JIA was(More)
A prospective study of 100 children aged 2-17 years (68 girls) with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) was initiated to follow changes in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), growth of the craniofacial complex and development of the dental occlusion, and to relate the findings to clinical and laboratory parameters. The mean age at onset was 5.5 years. The(More)
The pathogenesis of reduced mandibular dimensions and asymmetry was studied in 103 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Abnormalities of the temporomandibular joint were intimately related to mandibular growth disturbances. Unilateral joint abnormality resulted in jaw asymmetry and underdevelopment on the affected side. Duration of disease and of(More)
The present report is a longitudinal study of the craniofacial growth, based on lateral cephalographs of a group of 26 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA), and a matched English control group. In the 26 matched pairs, the mean age at baseline was 8.4 years and at 6-year follow-up 14.7 years, female/male ratio was 3.3/1, and all patients had(More)
In 103 patients (mean age 9 years) with the pauciarticular or polyarticular type of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, clinical aspects of mandibular growth and function and general disease variables were correlated with radiographically observed temporomandibular joint (TMJ) abnormality. Discriminant analysis of the entire group revealed that a combination of(More)
