Iridocyclitis associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
Am J Ophthalmol. 1975 Sep; 80(3 Pt 1):425-9.AJ

Abstract

In a study of 45 patients, those with monarticular and pauciarticular juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and with antinuclear antibodies, were likely also to have chronic, persistent iridocyclitis. In cases where iridocyclitis was present, topical mydriatics were used to prevent formation of posterior synechiae. Topical corticosteroids were used but discontinued if the uveitis failed to respond. Despite the generally poor prognosis for the vision of these patients, surgery for complicated cataract was often successful.
