Abstract views: 216
Keywords:Musculoskeletal complaints, joint pain, rheumatology, juvenile idiopathic arthritis
This review aimed to summarize key points that might suggest rheumatologic diseases to physicians dealing with musculoskeletal (MSK) complaints. Evaluation of a child presenting with MSK findings requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and systematic approach. In children with MSK complaints, detailed anamnesis, appropriate physical examination and joint examination, and the use of correct laboratory tests will be helpful for accurate diagnosis. The algorithm we have suggested for MSK complaints of children will be a guide for the physicians.
