Correlation of Uveitis and Arthritis Activity

Severity and duration of intraocular inflammation varies widely, but there appears no direct correlation between the activity of ocular and joint manifestations [9, 61]. Interestingly, on long-term follow-up, children with uveitis had more joints involved, more frequent intraarticular steroid injections were necessary to control arthritis and systemic immunosuppressive treatment had to be given more frequently. In addition, at the end of the observation period, systemic laboratory signs such as the blood sedimentation rate were more elevated in children with chronic arthritis and uveitis [36].
