Abstract
Purpose: To identify the characteristics and causes of uveitis in Seoul, South Korea. Methods: We performed a retrospective medical record review of 602 patients diagnosed with uveitis at seven tertiary ophthalmology centers between January and December 2013. Results: The most common type of uveitis was anterior uveitis (n = 281), followed by posterior uveitis (n = 152), panuveitis (n = 126), and intermediate uveitis (n = 43). Among patients with an identified cause (n = 252), 149 and 103 had non-infectious and infectious uveitis, respectively, and ankylosing spondylitis (n = 53), Behcet disease (n = 43), and endophthalmitis (n = 25) were common identified causes of uveitis. Conclusions: Anterior uveitis was the most common type of uveitis, and the incidence of infectious uveitis was relatively high in Seoul. Ankylosing spondylitis and Behcet disease were the most common systemic diseases causing uveitis in this sample.
