Abstract

The treatment of juvenile chronic arthritis requires the integration of various professionals (pediatrician, physiotherapist, orthopedic surgeon, ophthalmologist). The therapeutic program is targeted to control the inflammation with drugs and to preserve joint function with physiotherapy. Since juvenile chronic arthritis is clinically heterogeneous, the natural course and the possible complications which characterize each clinical form must be taken into account.
