The Juvenile idiophatic arthritis in spite of his low frequency, is the most frequent rheumatic inflammatory chronic disease in the infancy. Now we have precise and simple criteria to diagnose her in Primary care since they are criteria fundamentally clinical and spread on the time. The diagnosis of monkey or polyarthritis, in absence of infectious general symptoms and with normal X-ray photographies, must make us suspect her in 16-year-old minor patients. Also it will make us think about her his persistence of more than 6 weeks. The different clinical forms will be diagnosed by the reumatólogo. But the suspicion of the same one must establish it the doctor of Primary care or the pediatrician of the Center of Health. The aim is to know the initial treatment that controls the pain and the inflammation, to support the function and to favor a normal growth. It is not necessary to forget the possible ocular complications. To send to ophthalmology in the moment of the diagnosis and to realize annual reviews as well as on having presented any symptom that concerns the previous chamber.
