About the Video

In this video, Dr Mercieca explains the different clinical presentations as well as the differential diagnoses of JIA. Dr. Mercieca also discusses the importance of taking a full history, performing comprehensive examination and the role of both laboratory and radiological investigations. The various treatment and management options are explained followed by a discussion on management of the transition between adolescence and adulthood.
