About the IUSG

The IUSG was formed in 1978 by a small number of clinicians who shared a common interest in uveitis.

Over the next almost 40 years the group has increased in size to over 100 uveitis specialists from all over the world. The IUSG comprises clinicians and researchers who are committed to stimulate, encourage, and intensify a converted effort in research and clinical management of uveitis, with the goal of developing new methods for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the blinding complications of uveitis.

What is Uveitis?

Learn more

Uveitis is a name given to inflammation inside the eye that in some patients can lead to blindness.

It can affect one or both eyes and the inflammation involves the uveal tract (iris, ciliary body, and choroid), although inflammation of adjacent tissues, such as vitreous humour, retina, and optic nerve also occurs.

Little is known about the causes of uveitis, but in cases of endogenous uveitis in which no link with an infectious agent can be identified, abnormalities of immune regulation have been invoked as the cause.
