    To develop recommendations for the screening, monitoring, and treatment of uveitis in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).Methods. Pediatric rheumatologists, ophthalmologists with expertise in uveitis, patient representatives, and methodologists generated key clinical questions to be addressed by this guideline. This was followed by a system-atic literature review and rating of the available evidence according to the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation). A group consensus process was used to compose the nal recommendations and grade their strength as conditional or strong. Due to a lack of literature with good quality of evidence, recommendations were formulated on the basis of available evidence and a consensus expert opinion. Regular ophthalmic screening of children with JIA is recom-mended because of the risk of uveitis, and the frequency of screening should be based on individual risk factors.
