Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Purpose: To describe the clinical characteristics of Chinese patients with intermediate uveitis (IU). Methods: Retrospective review of patients with IU with at least 6 months follow-up. Results: Seventy patients were identified and the mean follow-up was 59.7 months. The mean age at presentation was 33.1 years. Fifteen (21.4%) patients had disease onset before the age of 18 years; 91.4% of IU cases were considered idiopathic after investigations. At the last follow-up, 85 (74.6%) eyes retained vision of at least 20/40. Poor visual outcome was significantly associated with poor presenting visual acuity (p = .002), presence of epiretinal membrane or atrophic macular changes (p = .003), persistent cystoid macular edema (p = .015), and increased disease duration (odds ratio = 1.015 per month, p = .002). Pediatric patients were more likely to have bilateral (p = .003) and chronic disease (p < .001). Conclusions: IU in Chinese patients was mainly idiopathic, with good visual outcomes in most patients after appropriate treatment.
