It may come as a surprise to hear that children can suffer from arthritis… but researchers estimate 1 in 1000 children in the United States and around the world are affected by this disease.

It is a disease involving the immune system, which can cause painful inflammation in the joints. Other areas of the body, especially the eyes may also show signs of the disease.
