Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessionalpeer-review


In 210 cases of uveitis sixteen were associated with sarcoidosis. All patients had bilateral involvement and thirteen patients had a panuveitis. Ophthalmic and systemic findings in these patients are described and compared with the literature. Nine patients were not known to have sarcoidosis previously; seven of these presented with the typical signs for sarcoidosis, such as periphlebitis with 'candle wax' exudates and/or small chorioretinal lesions.
