Examination of the aqueous humor as a diagnostic aid in anterior uveitis.


The aqueous humor of 20 cats and 17 dogs was examined to determine its importance as a diagnostic aid in anterior uveitis. Aqueous humor cytology and protein concentration differed in acute and chronic anterior uveitis but was not specific enough to be an aid in the diagnosis of feline infectious peritonitis. Cytologic examination of the aqueous humor was of benefit in determining the cause of anterior uveitis in 2 of 7 cases of lymphosarcoma. Cultures of aqueous humor proved negative in uveitis of more than 3 weeks' duration. Pseudomonas sp was cultured from the aqueous humor of a dog with anterior uveitis secondary to a perforating corneal injury.
