This is a retrospective and follow-up study of 110 patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis under observation in various clinics of the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, New York, for almost 30 years. The description of disease progress is based upon measurements made at two specific intervals—the first visit and the final follow-up examination conducted in 1956-1959.
