Abstract

The management of juvenile chronic arthritis requires a multidisciplinary approach. Treatment is based on knowledge of the pathogenetic factors playing a role in the disintegration of joints due to the chronic synovitis and consist of non-operative and operative methods. These therapeutic modalities are used in close coherence with each other. Preservation of ambulation and hand function has a priority in the treatment program. Early intervention, in order to prevent joint destruction is one of the cornerstones in the treatment of juvenile chronic arthritis.
