OBJECTIVES The characteristics of synovitis in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) are important to evaluate, as they define several clinical categories. The metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints are frequently involved. Few studies have investigated peripheral joint evaluation using ultrasonography, a sensitive tool for detecting subclinical synovitis. Our objectives here were to compare clinical and ultrasound evaluations of MCP and MTP joint synovitis and to… CONTINUE READING
