Prise en charge thérapeutique de la tuberculose oculaire présumée

Abstract : Uveitis secondary to tuberculosis is a rare event. The prevalence of tuberculosis is low in Western Europe and its microbiological identification is difficult. The clinical records of 13 patients with suspected tuberculosis uveitis referred to the Ophthalmology Department of Grenoble University, between 2002 and 2006, were retrospectively analysed. The clinical features of ocular inflammation were: bilateral panuveitis, posterior uveitis, Eales's disease, episcleritis and pars planitis. Patients received a specific antituberculosis treatment (with or without associated corticosteroid therapy). In presumed oculmar tuberculosis, antituberculosis treatment was useful to control intraocular inflammation in 91% of our patients.
