Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


“Uveitis” is the umbrella term for intraocular inflammation. Its nosology, or classification, varies in complexity based on intended use. Classification schemes are especially important for disorders such as uveitis, which can have multiple etiologies. At least 150 specific diseases are known to be associated with uveitis. Some are infectious and others are presumed to be autoimmune, including those associated with an underlying systemic inflammatory disease.
