Answer

The ACR issued recommendations for the treatment of JIA on the basis of the following 5 treatment groups [2] :

  • History of arthritis in 4 or fewer joints

  • History of arthritis in 5 or more joints

  • Active sacroiliac arthritis

  • Systemic arthritis without active arthritis

  • Systemic arthritis with active arthritis

Within each treatment group, choice of therapy is guided by the severity of disease activity and the presence or absence of features indicating a poor prognosis.
