The main idea of this course is to teach a strategy for stepwise diagnostic approach for different uveitis entities. Which laboratory tests should be and should not be done in which situation? Which clinical findings are important markers for strategic decisions? Which simple differential diagnostic approach should I use to not overlook important morphological changes? How and when do I treat topically? When do I send a patient to a rheumatologist? When is systemic immunosuppression indicated and appropriate? Which immunosuppressive drugs should I know?

Topics:

  • Epidemiology and terminology of uveitis
  • Diagnostic strategies
  • Differential diagnostic training with case presentations
  • Therapeutic concepts
