Diseases of the Anterior Chamber and Uvea

by Richard Mitchell, MD, PhD

The anterior chamber and uvea are affected by a multitude of conditions, the most common of which are open or closed-angle glaucoma and uveitis, respectively. To better understand these disorders, the student must be aware of the architecture and hydrodynamics of the anterior chamber, the structures that make up the uvea, and the pathophysiology of inflammation due to infectious (e.g., syphilis) and systemic (ankylosing spondylitis) causes. A good clinician will be knowledgeable of the ocular manifestations of systemic diseases since it can be the first sign of such during the physical examination.
