In brief: Many Sx!

Joint pain is most common, but high fevers and rash can occur, but usually in less than half.
Inflammation of the eye can occur, but much less common. If a child has a hot swollen joint, see a rheumatologist!

In brief: JRA/JIA symptoms

Children with juvenile arthritis most often have visible swelling of one or more joints for several days at least and morning stiffness in the affected joints.
If you are concerned that your child has juvenile arthritis, take them for evaluation to their doctor and request a referral to a pediatric rheumatologist if there is any concern. Pain is often not associated with arthritis in younger kids.
