Description

The International Stills Disease Foundation, Inc. (ISDFI) is a voluntary, non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support to those who suffer from Stills disease; to offer encouragement and facilitate communication between Stills Disease sufferers; to provide oral and written communication on Stills Disease to those with the disease, their families and health care workers; to increase general awareness of Stills disease and to encourage drug companies to conduct research on Stills disease; also to provide Stills disease patients, their families and health care workers with timely notification of bulletins and notices pertaining to new drugs or drug warnings. Stills Disease, also known as Systemic-Onset Disease, is one of the primary forms of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. In adults, it is referred to as Adult-Onset-Stills Disease. Systemic-onset disease is associated with joint abnormalities as well as "whole body" (i.e., systemic) symptoms. It may initially be characterized by a repeated high fever that may recur daily over weeks or longer. Feverish (febrile) periods may be accompanied by shaking chills and a flat, pale rash, primarily affecting the trunk and upper arms and legs.
