  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed 98 cases of endogenous uveitis dur-ing the foregoing 2 years. Among 29 cases of panuveitis, intermediate uveitis or posterior uveitis of unclassified etiology, 10 cases, 35%, were sero-positive for T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV -I). Membraneous vitreous opacities were more frequent in seropositive cases than in seronegative ones. Otherwise, there were no significant differ-ences in ocular manifestations between the two types.
