Abstract

Objectives: Localized compression of the median nerve due to wrist arthritis is a frequently reported complication in adult patients with rheumatoid arthritis. However, in only two cases median nerve compression has been reported in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) patients. In this study, we aimed to assess the effect of wrist involvement on median nerve electrophysiology in JIA patients.
