Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most frequently occurring chronic rheumatic disease of unknown etiology in childhood. Although JIA predominantly presents with peripheral arthritis, the disease is classified into seven categories depending on symptoms and clinical manifestations. The severity, efficacy of treatment, and long-term consequences of JIA are variable, and prevalence and incidence have also been shown to vary significantly across ethnicities and location among studies and countries. JIA is diagnosed on the basis of clinical and laboratory findings, but imaging is playing an increasing role in the diagnosis and management of JIA.
