Description

In this pedscase, we will explore this topic through the discussion of clinical cases related to acute and chronic uveitis that may appear in your practice.

 

By the end of this podcast, you should be able to:

  1. Generate a differential diagnosis for a child presenting with photophobia, redness, and tearing.
  2. Discuss the fact that chronic uveitis (aka ‘white uveitis’) can present with no symptoms and is often associated with a rheumatic disease, most commonly juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
  3. Review the relevant anatomy, classification, and potential complications of uveitis. 
  4. Differentiate the differences in etiology and presentation of a child with sudden-onset acute uveitis and insidious chronic uveitis. 
  5. Describe the diagnosis and management of a child presenting with either acute or chronic uveitis.
