Abstract

Uveitis may be restricted to the anterior segment, involve the anterior segment and anterior vitreous, or predominantly affect the posterior segment with or without signs of inflammation within the anterior chamber. Most forms of chronic uveitis are of unknown etiology; even when infectious agents are suspected, the evidence for their involvement is at best circumstantial.
