Abstract

PURPOSE:

To investigate the frequencies of the diseases in the new patients with uveitis during 2007-2009 and compare them with previously-reported data from the University of Tokyo Hospital.

METHODS:

We retrospectively analyzed the clinical records of patients who visited the outpatient clinic from January 2007 to December 2009, and compared them with those of 1963-2006.

RESULTS:

During 2007-2009, 468 new patients visited our hospital. Definite diagnoses were made in 63.0%. Frequent diagnoses include sarcoidosis (9.4%), Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease (7.9%), herpetic iritis (6.0%), Behçet's disease (5.6%), Posner-Schlossman syndrome (4.3%), HLA-B27-associated uveitis (3.0%), and intraocular malignant lymphoma (2.8%). Compared with our former findings, the ratios of sarcoidosis, herpetic iritis, CMV retinitis, Fuch's heterochromic iridocyclitis, acute retinal necrosis and intraocular lymphoma increased, while that of Behçet's disease decreased.

CONCLUSIONS:

Top three uveitis during 2007-2009 were sarcoidosis, VKH disease, herpetic iritis. Reduced frequency of Behçet's disease was one of the most prominent characteristics.
