Abstract

Relationships between 20 children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) and their siblings were compared with relationships among 20 comparison sibling pairs. Participants ranging in age from 7 to 21 years were interviewed using the Sibling Relationships Questionnaire-Revised. Parents completed ratings of their families' and children's behavior and an illness activity rating scale. Siblings in the JCA and comparison groups did not differ in perceptions of their relationships or in their family structure. Age, sex, birth order, and age difference between siblings were associated with sibling relationship variables, whereas adaptive behavior was not a significant factor. Among JCA patients, severity of illness was positively associated with perceived conflict with siblings.
