In 1896, a form of chronic infantile rheumatism was first noted in which symptoms of massive general inflammation were present in addition to arthritis. The disease was long referred to as Still’s syndrome or Still’s disease and was classified as a form of juvenile arthritis. With the classification of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), the disease was classified as Systemic JIA (SJIA). Many children have SJIA without arthritis, called juvenile still syndrome (jSD). The article provides an overview of the infantile and adult forms of Still’s syndrome.
