  • 1307 Accesses

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) is the most common type of childhood and adolescent chronic arthritis and a major cause of short- and long-term disability among the pediatric age group with chronic pediatric diseases (Cassidy & Petty, 2005) The term juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is used here because the criteria for this diagnosis (Cassidy et al., 1986) were the inclusion criteria for almost all of the studies cited (see Table 1).
