Abstract

Purpose of reviewThe aim of this study was to summarize the demographics and causes of paediatric uveitis and to discuss the latest treatment options for noninfectious paediatric uveitis.Recent findingsIn the last few years, reports out of Europe, Asia and the Americas have shown that the causes of paediatric uveitis can vary greatly geographically. With ongoing research into therapeutics, particularly the development of biologic agents, the treatment of noninfectious entities has evolved over time.SummaryEpidemiology data show that most paediatric uveitis cases worldwide are chronic and have noninfectious causes. Fortunately, we have more treatment options than ever to combat these sight-threatening diseases.
