About This Course

Anterior uveitis is the most common form of uveitis in any clinical setting. While a majority of cases are limited to the eye, in a significant number, anterior uveitis could be a manifestation of serious systemic disease. In this course, we will guide you through simple clinical clues for pattern recognition of the common forms of anterior uveitis, with minimum dependence on laboratory investigations.
