Answer

This group comprises patients who have developed active arthritis in 5 or more joints total throughout throughout their disease course. Patients need not currently have active involvement in 5 or more joints. According to ACR guidelines, this group includes patients with the ILAR categories of extended oligoarthritis, rheumatoid factor (RF) negative and RF-positive polyarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, enthesitis-related arthritis, and undifferentiated arthritis.
