ABSTRACTJuvenile idiopathic arthritis is a rheumatic disease that in its systemic form can affect different organs and systems of organs of the human body. Dermatological manifestations are among the most marked within the wide range of extra articular manifestations that may accompany the disease. It has been described, quite frequently, how the use of different chemical compounds may be able to act on the immune system of patients and predispose the appearance of dermatological manifestations, and even trigger or activate different rheumatic diseases. The case of a 14-year-old patient with a diagnosis of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, who begins to present dermatological manifestations 3 weeks after the completion of a tattoo, is presented.
