What Is Uveitis?

Uveitis (pronounced U'VE-I'TIS) means "inflammation of the uveal tract", or the middle layer of the eye. It is an immunologically mediated reaction in the uveal tract leading to its inflammation. It is important to clarify that there is no infection in uveitis. Uveitis may be an isolated problem or may be associated with inflammation in other parts of the body. It may be a single episode in some patients while in others it may have a tendency to be chronic and recurrent. We therefore thoroughly investigate a patient of uveitis to find a possible cause for this inflammation and its prognosis. To understand about uveitis and its seriousness, it may also be helpful to know the basic anatomy of this tissue of the eye.
