Were you looking for information about Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis? Juvenile rhumetoid arthritis is a common misspelling of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a condition characterized by joint inflammation and stiffness for more than six weeks in a child 16 years of age or less. Symptoms include redness, swelling, and soreness in the joints; these symptoms can limit the mobility of the affected areas. Doctors generally classify juvenile rheumatoid arthritis into three categories according to: the number of joints involved, the symptoms, and the presence or absence of certain antibodies. By classifying the type of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in this manner, healthcare providers can better predict what to expect, along with the possible complications that may occur for each individual.
