To assess the sequence and type of active joints in a cohort of newly diagnosed juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients with full access to current treatment at first visit and during a follow-up period of 5-years, in order to identify an index joint/group of joints for magnetic resonance imaging in JIA. Patient charts of all consecutive newly diagnosed JIA patients with a follow-up duration of at least 5 years were analyzed. Patients were derived from two tertiary pediatric rheumatology… Expand
Contrast-enhanced MRI features in the early diagnosis of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
TLDR
The presence of MRI-based synovitis is associated with the clinical onset of JIA, and physical examination could be supported by MRI, particularly to contribute in the early differentiation of different forms of non-infectious childhood arthritis. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging of the knee joint in juvenile idiopathic arthritis
TLDR
MRI inflammatory features of the knee in children with JIA are presented based on the literature and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows early detection of lesions and constitutes a superior diagnostic imaging method. Expand
Imaging of the hip in juvenile idiopathic arthritis
TLDR
The modalities utilised for imaging the hip in children with JIA are detailed with particular efforts focused upon reliability and validity in their assessment of joint disease. Expand
Imaging assessment of children presenting with suspected or known juvenile idiopathic arthritis: ESSR-ESPR points to consider
TLDR
Paediatric-specific imaging characteristics of the most commonly involved, in literature best documented and clinically important joints in JIA, namely the temporomandibular joints, spine, sacroiliac joints, wrists, hips and knees are discussed, followed by a clinically applicable point to consider for each joint. Expand
Normal MRI findings of the knee in patients with clinically active juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
Patients with RF-negative polyarticular JIA who had been diagnosed at a later age and were older at the time of MRI were most likely to be considered clinically active while MRI showed no signs of synovitis. Expand
Prevalence and course of lower limb disease activity and walking disability over the first 5 years of juvenile idiopathic arthritis: results from the childhood arthritis prospective study
TLDR
Lower limb synovitis and walking disability are relatively common around the time of initial presentation in children and young people with JIA, and there is an unmet need for non-medical strategies designed to prevent and/or resolve persistent walking disability in JIA. Expand
Current status of wrist imaging in juvenile idiopathic arthritis
TLDR
An update on the current status for imaging wrist JIA is provided, with a focus on evidence-based practice and a child-specific approach. Expand
Comparison of contrast-enhanced MRI features of the (teno)synovium in the wrist of patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis and pediatric controls
TLDR
The higher synovial thickening/enhancement scores on contrast-enhanced MRI of the wrist in JIA patients compared to pediatric controls substantially support rheumatologists and radiologists when navigating through MRI ofThe wrist in search for JIA disease activity. Expand
Juvenile idiopathic arthritis: magnetic resonance imaging of the clinically unaffected knee
TLDR
Children with synovial thickening on MRI were significantly younger than those without, which might indicate that younger patients are at risk of subclinical disease activity and under-treatment, although the exact clinical relevance of synovials on MRI has not been determined. Expand
Imaging of the knee in juvenile idiopathic arthritis
TLDR
The validation processes of MRI as an imaging biomarker for clinical trials in the JIA knee are at an advanced stage, with important data available on the feasibility, reliability and validity of the Juvenile Arthritis MRI Scoring system. Expand

The early pattern of joint involvement predicts disease progression in children with oligoarticular (pauciarticular) juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
The early presence of ankle and/or wrist disease, symmetric joint involvement, and an elevated ESR in a child with oligo-JRA indicates the likelihood of disease progression. Expand
Long-term outcome and prognosis in oligoarticular-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
Oligoarticular-onset JIA is a severe disease with frequent complications that could allow early identification of high-risk patient subgroups, warranting a more aggressive therapeutic approach. Expand
Disease course and outcome of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in a multicenter cohort.
TLDR
The results indicate that JRA is a disease that often extends into adulthood and functional outcome has improved; however, the estimated rate of arthroplasty remains very high. Expand
A 5-year prospective population-based study of juvenile chronic arthritis: onset, disease process, and outcome
TLDR
The study shows a diverse disease course during the first 5 years of JCA where one-third changed subgroup and two-thirds did not reach remission, and age of disease onset, the number of involved joints, and theNumber of joints with arthritis at inclusion were associated with poor outcome at the 5-year follow-up. Expand
A 2 year followup study of enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and clinical examination of the temporomandibular joint in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
TMJ involvement in patients with JIA is very common, and MRI findings such as synovial enhancement, pannus, and joint fluid fluctuate over time, and the clinical examination may be used as a filter to select children for enhanced MRI. Expand
Early predictors of prognosis in juvenile idiopathic arthritis: a systematic literature review
TLDR
Few predictors for the selected outcomes were found, and more disease activity was mainly associated with worse functional outcome, however, most predictors were not validated. Expand
Review for Disease of the Year: Epidemiology of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and its Associated Uveitis: The Probable Risk Factors
TLDR
For improvement of epidemiological knowledge of this complicated disease, large, well-defined, long-term population-based registries are needed with the application of universally agreed case definitions and outcome measures. Expand
Temporomandibular involvement in juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
Because of the high prevalence and discrepancy between clinical signs and presence of arthritis of the TMJ, regular orthodontic evaluation and OPG is recommended to recognize TMJ involvement and enable early intervention. Expand
Clinical assessment and core outcome variables are poor predictors of hip arthritis diagnosed by MRI in juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
The association between the clinician's assessment, core outcome variables and MRI findings in this study was limited, indicating that clinical and laboratory findings are inadequate diagnostic tools for the assessment of hip arthritis when compared with MRI as the gold standard. Expand
Predictors of poor response to methotrexate in polyarticular-course juvenile idiopathic arthritis: analysis of the PRINTO methotrexate trial
TLDR
The subgroup of patients with longer disease duration, ANA negativity, higher disability and presence of wrist activity were significantly associated with a poorer response to a 6-month MTX course. Expand
