Özet

The clinical characteristics of 147 Turkish patients with juvenile chronic arthritis seen between 1980 and 1988 were analyzed retrospectively. There was a male predominance (1.3:1), and a relatively low occurrence of early onset pauciarticular disease (16%), chronic anterior uveitis (7%) and positive antinuclear antigens (6%), but a high incidence of secondary amyloidosis (10%) was seen.
