About 1/3 of children thought to have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis were proven to have other disorders. There are many difficulties in establishing the diagnosis of JRA. The potential for error is great and must be recognized whenever the diagnosis of JRA is entertained. In addition to the employment of appropriate diagnostic means to exclude the entities likely to mimic JRA, it is essential to establish a positive diagnosis employing, if necessary, the technique of synovial biopsy.
