Abstract

Purpose: To report clinical features and prognosis of HLA B27 acute anterior uveitis. Methods: 165 patients with recurrent acute anterior uveitis were divided into two groups: HLA B27-positive (group 1, 60 patients) and HLA B27-negative (group 2, 105 patients). A comparison between the two groups was performed. Results: Unilateral involvement was higher in group 1 (p.=046), and more simultaneous bilateral cases occurred in group 2 (p=.004). Group 1 was more correlated to systemic diseases than group 2 (50 versus 17.1%, p
