    Abstract

    Juvenile arthritis may present as swollen fingers or foes or joint swelling after minor trauma. The diagnosis can easily be overlooked, as small children do not complain about pain. Untreated arthritis can cause deformities or, with eye involvement, damaged vision. Three case histories are presented as well as an audit of diagnostic delay in children with juvenile arthritis presenting to a paediatric rheumatology service over 12 months.
