A course of 4-5 intra-articular injections was given to 25 children aged 4-15 years with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis: 20% dimexide++ solution in combination with hydrocortisone (2 ml) was administered into the right knee joint and hydrocortisone (12.5 mg) into the left knee joint once a week. Dimexide++ solution combination with hydrocortisone proved to be most effective: all signs of inflammation subsided, the joint function was restored and there were no untoward reactions.
