Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a rare systemic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology characterized by four cardinal signs which are almost always present in patients: high spiking fever, arthralgia (with or without synovitis), maculo-papular salmon-pink evanescent skin rash, striking leukocytosis with neutrophilia. Here, we review the clinical features of AOSD and describe the best practice approaches for its management, reviewing available guidelines and recommendations and providing experts' insights.
