Intermediate uveitis is an inflammatory and proliferative disease involving the pars plana, basal of vitreous body, peripheral retina, and choroid, which account for 4–15% of the total number of uveitis. Traction of the fibrous membrane can cause retinal detachment. Posterior uveitis is an inflammation of the choroid, retina, and vitreous body. It can be caused by a variety of causes, including trauma, systemic disease, infection, immune abnormalities, tumors, and some unknown factors. Corticosteroid therapy is effective in most patients.
