The aims of this study were to primarily investigate fatigue and sleep and to secondarily examine possible relationships between disease activity, pain, and functional ability in children and adolescents with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Materials and methods: Ninety-six patients were enrolled in the study. Disease activity, functional ability, fatigue symptoms, fatigue severity, and sleep quality were assessed with the Juvenile Arthritis Disease Activity Score (JADAS), Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ), Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory-Multidimensional Fatigue Scale (PedsQL-F), visual analog scale (VAS), and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), respectively. Results: Fatigue severity was moderate to high in 75% of patients …
