We present a series of 14 Saudi patients diagnosed to have adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD). The clinical and laboratory pattern of AOSD in our series is more or less similar to that in other reported series, apart from having lower cardiac and pulmonary involvement than western series. The disease course was relatively benign, with only half the cases showing recurrences, which were controlled by alterations in the dosage of corticosteroid and NSAIDs. A comparison with other series is given.
