  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 16 cases of sympathetic ophthalmia during the foregoing 20 years. The series comprised 4 cases induced by ocular trauma and 12 cases by eye surgery. There was a tendency for postsurgical cases to increase during the period. Both groups showed similar features regarding age, sex, latency before onset, ocular and extraocular manifesta-tions, cerebrospinal fluid findings and HLA typing. Systemic corticosteroid was generally effective for both groups excepting protracted inflammation in 9 cases.
