Answer

This group includes all patients who fulfill the ILAR criteria for systemic arthritis and who have active fever of systemic JIA with or without other systemic features, but without active arthritis. [2] A 2-week trials of NSAIDs may be used in patients who have fever and less severe disease, and have had significant active systemic disease for less than 6 months; after that, patients should be started on systemic glucocorticoids, with adjunct NSAIDs as needed.
