Risk of Choroidal Neovascularization among the Uveitides – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the risk, risk factors, and visual impact of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in uveitis cases.Design: Retrospective cohort study.Methods: Standardized medical record review at 5 tertiary centers.Results: Among 15 137 uveitic eyes (8868 patients), CNV was rare in the cases of anterior or intermediate uveitis. Among the 4041 eyes (2307 patients) with posterior uveitis or panuveitis, 81 (2.0%) had CNV at presentation. Risk factors included posterior uveitis in general and specific uveitis syndromes affecting the outer retina–retinal pigment epithelium–choroid interface. Among the 2364 eyes (1357 patients) with posterior uveitis or panuveitis and free of CNV at the time of (Read more...)
