In the same Rodriguez et al study, [10] anterior uveitis was the most common form at 51.6%, and the etiologic distribution was as follows:

  • Idiopathic (37.8%)
  • Seronegative arthropathies (21.6%)
  • JRA (10.8%)
  • Herpes virus (9.7%)
  • Sarcoidosis (5.8%)
  • SLE (3.3%)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (0.9%)
