Abstract

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus and juvenile dermatomyositis are rare, chronic, multi-systemic rheumatic disorders that can be associated with significant morbidity, not only during childhood, but lifelong. Dedicated disease activity and damage assessment tools are essential to guide clinical management and perform multicentre clinical trials to ensure the best possible care and outcome for children with rheumatic diseases using an evidence-based, treat-to-target approach. This article summarizes the outcome measures most commonly used in paediatric rheumatology.
