Sally (a pseudonym used to protect patient confidentiality) is a 9-year-old girl who was diagnosed with JDMS in December 1996 by her primary care provider and begun on a subtherapeutic steroid dose of 20 mg daily.
Medical management of Sally's JDMS was several-pronged and included the following: (a) corticosteroid therapy in varying doses; (b) methotrexate and cyclosporin as immunosuppressants in an attempt to arrest the progress of the disease; (c) management of insulin resistance that had resulted from prolonged steroid use; and (d) management of obesity.
JDMS results in increased occlusion of capillaries and arterioles leading to tissue infarctions that may have inhibited wound healing.
