Answer

Acute nongranulomatous uveitis is associated with diseases related to human leukocyte antigen B27 (HLA B27), including ankylosing spondylitis, inflammatory bowel disease, reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and Behçet disease. Herpes simplex, herpes zoster, [14]  Lyme disease, and trauma also are associated with acute nongranulomatous uveitis.
