Abstract

A review of 348 consecutive cases of non-traumatic uveitis seen in the Wills Eye Hospital emergency room between Jan 1, 1981, and Dec 31, 1981, was conducted. Patients who presented with an initial episode of anterior non-granulamatous uveitis, without obvious etiology by history or clinical examination, were further evaluated for epidemiologic clues suggestive of a pathogenesis. This group consisted of 121 patients. A statistical analysis for seasonal variation suggested an increased occurrence during the summer months.
