Still's disease

Still’s disease is a form of arthritis that is characterized by high spiking fevers and evanescent (transient) salmon-colored rash. Still’s disease was first described in children, but it is now known to occur, much less commonly, in adults (in whom it is referred to as Adult-onset Still’s disease, AOSD). >>
