Abstract

The pattern of uveitis is influenced by a number of geographic, demographic and racial factors. Collaborative studies between different regions would be of help in establishing etiology and pattern of uveitis. A few studies on the pattern of uveitis from southern1-3 central and northern4 India have been reported in literature. In this paper we have highlighted the causes and characteristic pattern of uveitis seen over a period of 8 years in urban south Indian population of different age groups and gender seen at a private practice set up and also emphasize the difficulties faced by the treating physician to diagnose, treat and follow up these individuals.

Keywords: Uveitis, Granulomatous, Non-granulomatous, traumatic, Infective, Anterior, Intermediate, Posterior, Pan-uveitis.
