Reclassifying Idiopathic Uveitis: Lessons from a Tertiary Uveitis Center.

Summary of "Reclassifying Idiopathic Uveitis: Lessons from a Tertiary Uveitis Center."

Idiopathic uveitis is frequently the most common diagnosis in series from uveitis clinics. We sought to determine the percentage of patients initially diagnosed as idiopathic, non-infectious uveitis referred to a tertiary uveitis center who were subsequently found to have an identifiable cause of uveitis.
