Uveitis in childhood--Part II. Intermediate

Ann Ophthalmol. 1989 Jan;21(1):20-2.

Abstract

Intermediate uveitis poses a significant problem in treatment for the clinician. Guidelines for its treatment have been outlined in this paper including visual acuity decreases to 20/40, disc edema, subretinal exudation, and significant symptoms from vitreous floaters. Periocular adrenocorticosteroids are suggested as the treatment of choice. A brief account of the signs, symptoms, and suggested etiologic evaluation is included. This is the second in a three-part series of articles.
