Translated title of the contribution: The hypermobility syndrome in children

Abstract

Joint hypermobility syndrome is a common benign paediatric condition. Despite being asymptomatic in most cases, it can bring about musculoskeletal and joint pains. To make a diagnosis, it is necessary to rule out other possible causes of arthritis or arthralgia. The disease principally affects major joints; it is characterised by transitory symptoms, morning stiffness, absence of signs of synovial thickness and of systemic signs (fever, hepatosplenomegaly, cutaneous rash). Usually, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs or other minor painkillers are not needed, unless pain is intense. An analgesic therapy is recommended only when the child's quality of life is reduced.
