Ocular manifestations of vasculitis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Systemic necrotizing vasculitis is characterized by inflammation of blood vessels and often affects the eyes. Ocular manifestations of vasculitis may involve any part of the eye or orbit. The frequency of ocular involvement generally is dependent on the size and type of blood vessels affected by the vasculitis. This article reviews the major types of ocular inflammation and then addresses the ocular manifestations of specific systemic vasculitides.
