Adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a form of Still's disease, a rare systemic autoinflammatory disease characterized by the classic triad of persistent high spiking fevers, joint pain, and a distinctive salmon-colored bumpy rash. The disease is considered a diagnosis of exclusion. Adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD) is a rare condition affecting about one in every 100,000 adults. There is also a pediatric version called systemic onset juvenile inflammatory arthritis (SoJIA).Author: Seth Stoltzfus.
