The temporomandibular joint in juvenile idiopathic arthritis: Frequently used and frequently arthritic

Academic Article


  • Recent recognition of the markedly high prevalence of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthritis in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) coupled with the significant morbidity associated with TMJ damage has prompted increased interest in both the clinical and pathological aspects of TMJ arthritis. This review focuses on the prevalence of TMJ arthritis in JIA, the imaging modalities used to detect TMJ arthritis, and the treatment of TMJ arthritis in children with JIA. © 2009 Ringold and Cron; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
