Molecular Typing (SSOP)
Uveitis is one of the most common form of inflammatory eye disease and is a significant cause of visual impairment and blindness. Uveitis onset is usually between the ages of 20 to 50 and uncommon in the very young and in the elderly. Patients with a uveitis affected relative who are HLA-B27 positive are at higher risk of developing the disease.
