What is Adult Still’s disease

Adult Still’s disease is a rare type of inflammatory arthritis that features fevers, rash, and joint pain. Some people have just one episode of adult Still’s disease. In other people, the condition persists or recurs.

This inflammation can destroy affected joints, particularly the wrists. Treatment involves medications, such as prednisone, that help control inflammation. (source)
