    Article - En anglais

    In order to determine the prevalence of inflammatory rheumatic diseases in an urban secondary school student population, a questionnaire dealing with past or present joint, tendon, axial, gastrointestinal, ocular and dermatological symptoms was completed by 2, 990 students of secondary schools in Antwerp and Ghent.

    The parents were asked to complete a questionnaire regarding the family medical history.

    From these 2,990 students, 524 were selected for further investigation by a rheumatology resident, who checked the answers to the first questionnaire and performed a clinical examination.

    Forty-one adolescents with a presumptive history or present symptoms of inflammatory rheumatic diseases were retained.
