    Default Types of juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

    They include;

    • Oligoarticular arthritis. This type affects 4 or less joints in the patient.
    • Polyarticular (Rhf negative). This type affects more than 5 joints. The negative in the Rhf, an abbreviation for rheumatoid factor, represents the missing antibodies in the patient’s blood.
    • Polyarticular (Rhf positive). This type also affects 5 or more joints. Within the patient’s blood, the rheumatoid factor exists. Polyarticular type of arthritis has similar characteristics with rheumatoid arthritis in adults.
    • Systemic arthritis. This form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis is chronic and is characterized by systemic features.
    • There is also arthritis that is Enthesis related. Enthesis is the inflammation of ligaments, fascia and tendon insertions. This type is also chronic.
    • Psoriasis arthritis. This type is also chronic and is usually characterized by asymmetrical involvement of small and large joints.
