Uveitis or inflammation of the uveal tract results from a heterogeneous collection of disorders of varying etiologies and pathogenic mechanisms. Uveitis is relatively frequent in industrial countries with an estimation of 115 cases for 100 000 persons and is associated with a blindness risk of 10%. Causes of uveitis can be related to different etiologies (infectious, inflammatory or general inflammatory diseases). Therapeutic care is based on ophthalmologic and systemic diagnosis and treatment strategy depends on the severity of inflammation.
The main objective of the Lyon uveitis study is to analyze the uveitis ophthalmologic etiology and diagnostic and therapeutic care of the patients.
