Certain infectious uveitic entities may also be mistaken for immunologic uveitis. Thus, non-neoplastic masquerade syndromes can also include bacterial uveitis caused by infection with Nocardia species or Tropheryma whipplei (Whipple disease), as well as fungal endophthalmitis due to infection with Candida species, Aspergillus species, or Coccidioides immitis. These entities are discussed in Chapters 10 and 11.
