In order to improve the investigators knowledge about uveitis and the underlying mechanism of
disease, the investigators propose collecting blood from patients with uveitis, isolating DNA
and sequencing the DNA to identify genetic mutations or associations in these patients.
- Any patient above with the diagnosis of uveitis.
- Any patient with a diagnosis of infectious uveitis such as toxoplasmosis
retinochoroiditis, herpes associated retinitis.
- Patients who are unable to give consent
- Patients in whom an adequated blood sample can not be obtained.
