Idiopathic posterior uveitis
Idiopathic posterior uveitis is a rare potentially sight-threatening ocular disease not attributed to any specific ocular or systemic cause characterized by focal multifocal or diffuse non-infectious inflammation in the posterior uvea (i.e. choroiditis chorioretinitis retinitis and neuroretinitis). Visual morbidity due to complications (including cystoid macular edema and choroidal neovascularization) has been reported.
