Arthritis doesn’t just affect adults. Kids — even infants — can get arthritis too. The most common type of juvenile (childhood) arthritis is called “juvenile idiopathic arthritis” (JIA). It’s an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation, swelling, pain and other symptoms in a child’s joints, or throughout the body. At Nemours Children's, our teams of pediatric rheumatologists are recognized for our expert care and research into helping kids with JIA feel their best as they grow.
