UVEITIS in Patients with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Boyko Ya.E.

Summary. Uveitis is the most common extra-articular complication of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Disease severity depends on grade of inflammation activity at time of diagnosis, presence of complications and possibility to obtain treatment response while applying existing treatment modalities. Untimely diagnostics of uveitis leads to complications linked to decreased visual acuity, therefore early diagnostics and timely treatment of this disease are paramount. Active studies of novel methods of uveitis treatment in children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis are currently under way.
