Rationale: Clinical manifestations associated with JRA include intermittent joint pain that lasts longer than 6 weeks and painful, stiff, and swollen joints that are warm to the touch, with limited range of motion. The child will complain of morning stiffness and may protect the affected joint or refuse to walk. Systemic symptoms include malaise, fatigue, lethargy, anorexia, weight loss, and growth problems. A history of a late afternoon fever with temperature spiking up to 105 F will also be part of the clinical manifestations.
