Media file 6: Hand and wrist X-rays of inactive polyarticular arthritis (same person shown in Image 5). Long-term symptoms of polyarticular disease include decreased bone density around joints, bone fusion, accelerated bone age, narrowed joint spaces, boutonniere deformities (at left third and fourth interphalangeal joints), and partial dislocation (subluxation) of joints.

Media file 7: Eye inflammation (chronic anterior uveitis). Note the weblike attachments of the pupillary margin to the anterior lens capsule of the right eye. This patient has a positive antinuclear antibodies (ANAs) and initially had a pauciarticular course of her arthritis. She now has polyarticular involvement but no active uveitis.
