1. Is measurement of IgM and IgA rheumatoid factors (RF) in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis clinically useful?
Match Strength: 14.102
The prevalence and clinical relevance of IgM and IgA RF detected by ELISA were studied in 91 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and 45 healthy children. IgM and IgA RF were detected, respectively, in 33 and 44% of the patients, compared to 6.7 and 15.6% of the healthy children (p = 0.001 and 0.0006, respectively). The frequency of IgM RF was significantly higher in patients with polyarticular (52%) as compared to systemic onset JRA (21%; p = 0.04). Five out of ninety-one patients and none of the control group were IgM RF positive by the latex test. High levels of IgM RF were ... Read More »

Progressive pseudorheumatoid arthropathy of childhood (PPAC) is a rare single gene disorder which is frequently misdiagnosed as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It is characterised with arthralgia, joint contractures, bony swelling of metacarpophalangeal and interphalangeal joints and platyspondyly. Clinical and laboratory signs of joint inflammation such as synovitis, a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate and an elevated C-reactive protein level are usually absent.
