Abstract

Uveitis is a sight-threatening disease that can be associated with many different etiologies. Successful treatment of uveitis relies on accurate diagnosis and prompt efficient therapy. History taking, physical and ocular examinations, systemic evaluations, and response to treatment provide crucial information to differentiate possible etiologies involved in the pathophysiology of intraocular inflammation. This article provides recommendations for a step-wise approach to patients with uveitis in Taiwan based on an expert meeting and consensus. Systemic evaluations for uveitis should be performed step-by-step and include investigation of patients’ general systemic conditions, ruling out infectious etiologies, and obtaining evidential biomarkers to diagnose a specific disease entity.
