  • Name the most common type of juvenile localized scleroderma.

  • Discuss the criteria for diagnosis of juvenile dermatomyositis, and treatment approaches


Overview of jia
Overview of JIA

  • New classification criteria proposed by the Pediatric Task Force of the International League of Associations for Rheumatology (ILAR) in 1997

  • Chronic arthritis in childhood – one of the more frequent chronic illnesses of childhood.

  • An important cause of short and long-term disability


Chronic arthritis in childhood jia
Chronic arthritis in childhood: JIA

  • It’s not a single disease, but a group of related, genetically heterogeneous, phenotypically diverse immunoinflammatory disorders affecting joints and other structures, possibly activated by contact with an external antigen or antigens.


Jra incidence prevalence
JRA - Incidence/Prevalence

  • Published series are difficult to interpret due to classification, methodologies, heterogeneity

  • Incidence: (per year)

    1/100,000 in Japan

    20/100,000 in Norway

  • Prevalence:

    • 10 /100,000 in France

    • 400/100,000 in Australia

    • 113/ 100,000

  • Arthritis Foundation:

    300,000 children in the US have chronic arthritis.

    .


Jra classification criteria
JRA – Classification Criteria

  • JRA – American College of Rheumatology 1970 three types of onset: oligo (pauciarticular), polyarticular, & systemic in the first 6 months of onset

  • JCAJuvenile Chronic Arthritis (European League Against Rheumatism) 1977

  • JIAJuvenile Idiopathic Arthritis proposed by the Pediatric Task force of the International League of Associations for Rheumatology ILAR (1993) – developed to achieve homogeneity within disease and categories.


Sex ratio
Sex Ratio

Jia outcomes mortality
JIA outcomes: Mortality

Disease associated death rate is

< 1% in Europe

< 0.3% in North America

These numbers represent a

4 Fold to 14 fold Increase in Mortality Rate

Compared with General Population

Causes are cardiac, infection & macrophage activation syndrome



Classification criteria for jia

Duration of Arthritis: 6 weeks

Arthritis in one or more joints defined as swelling or effusion, or presence of two or more of the following signs: (in 1 or more joints)

Limitation of ROM

Tenderness or pain on motion

Increased heat

Exclusion of other diseases

Etiology


Jia and other rheumatic diseases in children

Synovial lining is a thin membrane enclosing the joint space. The joint space contains fluid that bathes the joint and reduces friction on motion.


Jia and other rheumatic diseases in children

With onset of inflammation, the synovial lining thickens and secretes more fluid, which may remain in the joint and cause swelling. The inflamed lining produces warmth, swelling, and pain.

As inflammation progresses, the synovial lining grows over the cartilage and starts to erode it. As inflammation continues, changes include marked erosion of cartilage, cystic changes and thinning of the bone.

Jia and other rheumatic diseases in children

Guidelines for ophthalmological screening of children with JIA

High risk – screen every 3 months

Moderate risk – screen every 4-6 months

Low risk: screen every 12 months

All patients considered to be at low risk 7 yr after onset of arthritis; should have yearly ophthalmological exams indefinitely.

All patients are considered to be at low risk 4 years after onset of arthritis, should have yearly ophthalmological exams indefinitely.

All high risk patients are considered to be at medium risk 4 years after onset of arthritis.
