Retinal vasculitis is one of the most common yet poorly understood manifestations of intraocular inflammation. It can be limited to the eye or associated with significant systemic diseases. In this course, we will explore the wide range of presentations of retinal vasculitis and the clinical signs that can lead us to appropriate laboratory investigations.
