Stills Disease

Still’s disease is a form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, often qualified by high impaling fevers and ephemeral rashes, called after the English physician Sir George Frederic Still (1861-1941). The malady was first discovered in neonates, but now it is also known to occur, less commonly, in adults in whom it is referred to as adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD) described by another English physician, Bywaters in 1971 (the same author is famous for the crush syndrome).

The famous writer from Irelan William Wall was the famous personality known to suffer from this disease.
