Uveitis is defined as intraocular inflammation. It is an extra-articular manifestation of many forms of joint disease which include spondyloarthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and Behcet's disease. Rheumatologists may be asked to consult on patients with uveitis in order to identify an associated systemic illness. Diagnoses such as spndyloarthritis, sarcoidosis, and interstitial nephritis with uveitis are frequently overlooked by referring ophthalmologists. Alternatively rheumatologists may be asked to help manage the immunosuppression including biologics which can be required to treat a subset of patients with uveitis. This review is written to provide rheumatologists with the necessary information to facilitate collaboration in co-managing patients with uveitis. This article is protected by copyright.
