    Roadmap for Intermediate Uveitis, Part 1: Evaluation

    By Abdelsattar Farrag, MSc, FRCS

    In the first part of this 2-part video on intermediate uveitis, Dr. Abdelsattar Farrag focuses on diagnosis and evaluation of the disease. First, take a standard patient history, followed by a more detailed history after the initial examination. A detailed examination of all parts of the eye should then be conducted. Signs of intermediate uveitis that can be seen when the fundus is dilated include vitritis and snowballs (both highly characteristic of the disease), snowbanking, and associated peripheral retinal vasculitis. It is also important to run laboratory tests to check for possible systemic causes of intermediate uveitis, such as sarcoidosis and multiple sclerosis.
