  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 121 eyes of 94 patients with acute anterior uveitis seen during the foregoing 13 years. Clinical manifestations were almost the same as in previous reports. Fluorescein angiography showed abnormal findings in about 50% of the cases. Recurrence developed in about 50% of cases who could be followed up for one year or longer. Cases with HLA-B27 showed similar clinical features as in those without but developed more frequent recurrences. Systemic diseases including ulcerative colitis and ankylosing spondylitis were present in 17 patients (18%). The findings show the multiplicity in the etiology of acute anterior uveitis.
