Abstract

A retrospective review is presented of the medical records of seven female patients with uveitis associated with definite multiple sclerosis. Six of the patients had severe bilateral chronic granulomatous anterior uveitis, which in four cases resulted in extensive posterior synechiae and scarring of the peripupillary iris. One patient had bilateral intermediate uveitis with unilateral posterior synechiae. Severe chronic granulomatous anterior uveitis associated with multiple sclerosis has a predilection for women, can precede neurological symptoms and can be controlled with topical steroids.
