An analysis of age of onset in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis was performed in the last 300 children seen in our clinic. There was a peak age of onset in girls at 1 to 3 years. Distribution of age of onset in boys was bimodal with the first peak at 2 years of age and the second at 9 years. There was no accentuation of frequency in either sex in the 10- to 14-year age group. The distribution of age of onset was bimodal in both monarticular and polyarticular onset of disease, but no particular… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Subpopulations Within Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
While a secure classification of subpopulations within JPsA awaits improved pathophysiologic understanding, future research must consider the possibility that different disease mechanisms may be operative in distinct subsets of patients with this disorder. Expand
Incidence and prevalence of juvenile chronic arthritis: a population survey.
TLDR
In a population based epidemiological survey of juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA), performed in Western Sweden in 1983, an incidence of 12/100,000 was found and the estimated prevalence was 56/ 100,000, suggesting differences in population based studies of JCA compared with previously reported hospital based series. Expand
Clinical observations of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
This study may suggest regional differences and variability in disease groups of JRA among different racies, but further multi-center trials and large scale epidemiological studies are needed to confirm the conclusion. Expand
Juvenile Chronic Arthritis: spectrum of disease in an adult rheumatology department
TLDR
The chronic and potentially disabling nature of this condition in some children and the need for a multidisciplinary team approach in the management of juvenile chronic arthritis are emphasized. Expand
Clinical comparison of early-onset psoriatic and non-psoriatic oligoarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
TLDR
Findings support separate diagnostic categories for juvenile idiopathic arthritis and psoriatic JIA but justify further investigation into the similarities as well as differences among these children. Expand
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in Auckland: a long term follow-up study with particular reference to uveitis.

  • Medicine
  • Australian and New Zealand journal of medicine
  • 1987
TLDR
The outcome for the group as a whole was excellent although patients with a polyarticular course, regardless of onset subtype, had a poorer outcome with respect to both ongoing disease activity and functional disability. Expand
Mandibular condyle lesions related to age at onset and subtypes of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in 15-year-old children.
TLDR
Regular measurements of maximal movements of the mandible or roentgenologic examinations of the TMJ are essential for their optimal treatment of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Incidence of arthritis in urban Finnish children. A prospective study.
TLDR
The incidence of various types of arthritis in children was estimated by a prospective 1-year study in the greater Helsinki area and oligoarticular disease was prevalent among the juvenile rheumatoid arthritis patients. Expand
Factors affecting clinical and therapeutic outcomes of patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
There are different phenotypic features among Taiwanese children with JRA, and factors related to the failure of first remission were HLA‐B27, high CRP level, and thrombocytosis at diagnosis. Expand
Chapter 16 – OLIGOARTHRITIS
TLDR
The ILAR classification requires that patients who otherwise fulfill these criteria be excluded from the category if they have psoriasis, but such exclusions do not apply to the EULAR criteria for oligoarticular juvenile chronic arthritis2 or American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for pauciarticular Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

The relationship of rheumatoid factor to age of onset in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Differences in the incidence of rheumatoid factor was shown to be clearly related to age at onset, and the differences were statistically highly significant. Expand
A five year prospective study of rheumatoid factor tests in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
A crosssectional group of patients with JRA of various ages and differing durations of disease activity has been examined and it is intended that a composite view of the disease will approximate data that might have been obtained from the more desirable, longitudinal investigation. Expand
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis: a review.
TLDR
Observations suggest that what is now called JRA may in fact be more than a single disease, and recognition of these disease patterns is useful in the diagnosis and care of children with JRA. Expand
Clinic and prognosis of rheumatoid arthritis in children.
TLDR
Cases of rheumatoid arthritis in children below 15 years, treated in the Rheumatological Department of the University Hospital, Lund, Sweden, before 1951 were re-examined after an interval of at least 5 years, and contained more than twice as many girls as boys. Expand
Clinical correlates of antinuclear antibodies in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
In juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, ANA were found significantly more frequently in girls, in patients with early onset of disease or whose present age was young, and in those with polyartsicular disease or with monarticular disease and iridocyclitis. Expand
Monarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Patients who had monarticular rheumatoid arthritis in childhood are reviewed and the diagnostic and prognostic aspects of the disease are examined. Expand
Antinulear factors in childhood rheumatic diseases.
TLDR
A study of antinuclear factors in childhood disease revealed positive tests in 15 of 16 children with systemic lupus erythematosus, 19 of 85 with rheumatoid arthritis, and 8 of 34 with ulcerative colitis, suggesting a definite influence of sex on the capacity to form them. Expand
Monoarticular Arthritis in Children
TLDR
All joint tuberculosis cases should have a synovial biopsy, with histological and bacteriological examination of the tissue, as there was little difference in results between those first seen within a year and those seen after, both are considered together. Expand
