In brief: Most not JRA!

Children rarely get ccp and rf positive true ra, usually before mid teen years.
We now call it "juvenile idiopathic arthritis, " or jia, in recognition that it is usually different. Apart from joint inflammation, fever and rash are much more common. Treatment will vary depending on the age and size of the child.
