Magnetic Resonance Imaging Follow-up on Temporomandibular Arthritis in Children With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Arthritis of the Temporomandibular Joints in Children With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis- Pilot Study on Diagnostic Value of Ultrasonography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Influence of Drug Treatment

Children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) suffer in up to 87% of the cases of arthritis of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the only modality for the early diagnosis of TMJ involvement.

Aim of the study is to compare symptoms and clinical findings with MRI and ultrasonography results and to describe the action of the current medication on the arthritis of the TMJs.
