Abstract

We report a clinical case of adult-onset Still's disease. In addition to the imaging features of the case, the following aspects are also briefly described: clinical presentation (prolonged fever associated with migratory polyarthritis and skin rash), treatment performed (resort to anti-inflammatory and corticoid), and clinical evolution of the patient after having performed the adult-onset.
The treatment was found to be appropriate as the patient presented a favourable clinical evolution.
