Although ocular inflammations are rare in all age groups, they are even more rare in children. There are few texts and journal articles on ocular inflammation in children and even fewer address etiologic factors, diagnostic workup, or nonsurgical management. One solution to the problem of lack of exposure to this clinical entity is for each community of physicians to encourage an interested ophthalmologist to develop extra experience and authority in ocular inflammation. All persons, and particularly patients with ocular inflammation, deserve to be in the best possible health. The only way to establish the state of health is by the standard tools of medicine: family and past history, system review, defining the present illness for temporal and symptomatic aspects, physical and ocular examinations, and appropriate laboratory testing.
