Causes of Uveitis

Causes of Uveitis

About 40% of uveitis cases may not have an underlying case (idiopathic). Others may be related to specific genes (HLA-B27, HLA-A29). Some forms of uveitis are associated with systemic autoimmune disease (sarcoidosis, multiple sclerosis, Behçet’s disease among others) while others are associated with systemic infections (tuberculosis, syphilis, lyme disease among others). As part of your evaluation for uveitis we will obtain appropriate lab work and imaging to help better guide therapy.
