Abstract

Adult-onset StilVs disease remains a clinical diagnosis and a diagnosis of exclusion: its prompt recognition will avoid unnecessary diagnostic procedures and delay in ini-tiating therapy.

The clinical and laboratory features and treatment of 16 patients with Adult-onset StilVs Disease (AOSD) at Hamad General Hospital (HGH) were studied and com-pared with 62 patients of G. Pouchot.

Eight patients were female (50%), ten (62.5%) hadpoly-arthritis and rash, fourteen (87%) had fever > 39°C. Leu-kocytosis, thrombocytosis and hyperferritinemia were present in most of the patients.
