Session Type: ACR Poster Session A
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) associated uveitis is the most common extraarticulare comorbidity of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Nowdays it occurs in about 10-15% of JIA patients. As effective treatment options are emerging, is it extremely important to propose validated definition of inactivity, which is main aim of the treatment.
Methods: Multinational Interdisciplinary Working Group for Uveitis in Childhood Group (MIWGUC) had prospectively evaluated the validity of the proposed outcome measures(1). Based on these data, we proposed a definition of inacitivity using the nominal group technique in a consensus meeting in Barcelona, Spain, in November 2015.
Results: The following items were selected to define inacitivity. It is required, that in both eyes the following condition is reached: 1. Slit lamp total number of AC cells: 0 inflammatory cells *In aphakic patients ,some cells may be present, in the anterior vitreous 2. Absence of Optic disc edema *The presence of isolated optic disc edema may not be a sign of activity 3. Absence Macular edema *The presence of isolated macular edema may not be a sign of activity 4. Absence of Vitreous haze *The presence of isolated vitreous haze may not be a sign of activity 5. VAS score of activity physician 0-100: must be 0
Conclusion: We proposed items to define inactivity of JIA associated uveitis, which is a major goal of treatment. This proposal will be validated from the MIWGUC group in prospective study. References:
