A case of Still's disease treated with Cortisone is reported. The response was very good and transformed an ill, bedridden child into a happy, mobile little girl. Cure has not been effected; only temporary symptomatic relief. Relapses have occurred during intermittent therapy, but have been controlled by an increase in dosage. Treatment did not prevent the onset of pericarditis. The investigations, treatment and response are reported in a chart.
