Uveitis can be defined as any inflammation affecting the uveal tract, although in clinical practice this term includes any intraocular inflammatory event. The etiology of this inflammation can be related to an endogenous mechanism in the clinical course of a systemic disease (sarcoidosis, Behçet's disease, multiple sclerosis, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, etc.), or an isolated ocular entity. Sometimes, ocular inflammation is the initial manifestation of an undiagnosed systemic disease. On the… 

CNS Diseases and Uveitis

Major neurological syndromes including multiple sclerosis, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, other autoimmune syndrome, and several infectious diseases which may affect the eye are described to serve as a guide for the diagnosis and treatment.

25-gauge Vitrectomy for Complicated Chronic Endogenous/Autoimmune Uveitis: Predictors of Outcomes

25-gauge vitrectomy may be beneficial in patients with complicated chronic endogenous uveitis in terms of VA and control of inflammation, and accompanying cataract extraction and the absence of preoperative cystoid macular edema were indicators of better outcomes.

Prevalencia de las enfermedades inflamatorias oculares

Las enfermedades inflamatorias se clasificaron de acuerdo a the Nomenclatura Estandarizada para las Uveitis del Grupo Internacional de Trabajo y el analisis de resultados se realizo con estadistica descriptiva.



Neurological concomitants of uveitis

Aim: To describe the prevalence and types of neurological disease that occur in association with uveitis. Methods: Retrospective review of medical records of patients attending a tertiary referral

Ocular involvement in chronic sarcoidosis.

Multiple sclerosis-associated uveitis

MS-associated uveitis should be suspected in white female patients with bilateral uve inflammation, especially if pars planitis is present, especially in patients who retain useful vision for many years if treated.

[Proliferative retinal vasculitis and multiple sclerosis: a case report].

This case shows that the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis must be established in cases of ischemic retinal vasculitis, especially as the literature does not seem to report a correlation between the retinal vascular affect and how far multiple sclerosis has progressed.

Multiple sclerosis associated with uveitis in two large clinic-based series

The delay between the onset of neurologic and ocular symptoms (mean, 9 years) emphasizes the importance of a sequential diagnostic search throughout the patient’s course.
