Abstract

Ophthalmologists do not consider pars planitis to occur on a familial basis. The development of pars planitis in nine members of four different families is reported. Affected family members include twin sisters, a mother and daughter, two brothers, and a sister and two brothers from the same family. This suggests that a common hereditary and/or environmental factor contributed to the disease in these patients.
