GARCIA MUNITIS, Pablo; VES LOSADA, Juan E  and  MATA, Estefanía. Uveitis: when the referral is to the pediatrician. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.3, pp.272-276. ISSN 0325-0075.

Uveitis is a heterogeneous group of clinical entities that have in common ocular inflammation. The wide range of causes of uveitis makes diagnosis and family support difficult; hence the pediatrician occupies a determinant site to provide a coherent and timely diagnostic strategy. The aim of this paper is to present a 16-year-old patient who consulted to the ophthalmologist for red eye associated with lacrimation, photophobia, and pain. Once the diagnosis of acute anterior uveitis was made, the specialist suggested a pediatrician consult to rule out a systemic disease.

Keywords : Uveitis; Differential diagnosis; Classification; Juvenile idiopathic arthritis; Referral and consultation.
