NOT ANOTHER CASE OF JUVENILE IDIOPATHIC ARTHRITIS: CONGENITAL INSENSITIVITY TO PAIN PRESENTING WITH JOINT PROBLEMS
Keywords:Congenital insensitivity to pain, Neurogenic arthropathy, Charcots joints, Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy
AbstractCongenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is a rare condition with protean manifestations. Occasionally, these diseases may present with musculoskeletal problems. Here we report a case of young child who presented with joint problems in our clinic. Since the child had a number of musculoskeletal manifestations her diagnosis was difficult and delayed. She was given supportive treatment and a team of doctors from different specialties was involved in her management.
