PURPOSE To describe the evolution of retinal thickness in eyes affected with acute anterior uveitis (AAU) in the course of follow-up and to assess its correlation with severity of inflammatory activity in the anterior chamber. METHODS 72 eyes (affected and fellow eyes) of 36 patients presenting with HLA-B27-related acute anterior uveitis were included in a prospective, institutional, cohort study. Patients were followed daily until beginning of resolution of inflammatory activity and weekly… CONTINUE READING
