Figure G2 is a forest plot of the sensitivity and specificity of antinuclear antibody test for polyarticular juvenile idiopathicarthritis. It includes 5 studies: Fawcett 1999, Haynes 1986, Osborn 1984, S-Mavridou, and Wakhlu 2003. Sensitivity ranged from 0.03 (95% CI: 0.00, 0.11) in Wakhlu to 0.67 (95% CI: 0.56, 0.77) in Osborn. Specificity ranged from 0.73 (95% CI: 0.60, 0.83) in Osborn to 1.00 (95% CI: 0.86, 1.00) in Wakhlu.
