Additional comments JIA komt bij ongeveer 4.000 kinderen in Nederland voor; 30-40 nieuwe JIA diagnoses per jaar. De twee subtypen (Psoriatic arthritis en Enthesitis related arthritis) omvatten 20% van alle subtypen. Dit betekent dat er mogelijk substitutie bij een deel van de 800 prevalente patiënten plaats zal vinden plus 6 tot 8 nieuwe patiënten per jaar.
