The relationship between ocular and articular disease activity in children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and associated uveitis

Arthritis Rheum. 1986 Jun;29(6):797-800. doi: 10.1002/art.1780290615.


The onset patterns and disease courses of children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and uveitis were reviewed to establish correlations. Results indicated that although the disease activity of arthritis and uveitis may at times run a parallel course, it is more common for the activities to be independent.
