We studied 54 patients with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA).

From these, 5 had nongranulomatous Iridocyclitis and two with serious complications: the atrophy of the eye.

Eighty per cent of the cases (4 cases) did not present any complain or had their ocular disease diagnosed before to be examined at the Ophthalmology Department. We emphasize the importance of early diagnosis. since there is usually no symptoms and the complications may cause blindness.
