Abstract

High fever, spleen and lymph node enlargement, and joint pains that assumed the character of rheumatoid arthritis in the ensuing months were noted after a viral hepatitis episode in a 21-year-old woman. Serious anaemia and myocarditis also appeared when the picture was at its worst. A lymphoma was suspected, and the spleen and some abdominal lymph nodes were removed. These displayed signs of intense follicular reaction unaccompanied by atypia. The possibility that juvenile rheumatoid arthritis may be triggered by hepatitis is examined.
