abstract

  • Systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis unresponsive to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may be controlled with corticosteroids, but these drugs have significant side effects. We report 2 steroid-dependent children with systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who did not respond to multiple nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, methotrexate, azathioprine, cyclosporine, and etanercept. Both children had significant improvement with thalidomide therapy.
