Retinitis and retinochoroiditis lesions are unique amongst different forms of uveitis as they are almost always associated with some form of infection. Correct recognition of retinitis lesions is critical for initiating the appropriate antimicrobial therapy, and to avoid potentially harmful consequences of using corticosteroids alone. This course will focus on the pattern recognition in retinitis lesions.
