- This symposium will allow the participants to improve their knowledge of new diagnostic tools used for the diagnosis and management of different types of uveitis and masquerade syndromes. The long-term prognosis of infectious uveitis and intraocular lymphoma has been dramatically improved by the use of technologies such as PCR, molecular biology and cytokine analysis. More recently, other markers including regulatory T-cells have also been monitored during immunosuppressive therapy in order to predict inefficacy or rapid relapse. ICG, OCT and other imaging tools have allowed us to better understand the pathophysiology of retinal and choroidal inflammation. Based on these markers, the diagnosis and follow-up of uveitic entities becomes more predictable and efficient.
