Gender and Uveitis

Description

Sex differences in medicine include sex-specific diseases occurring only in one sex and sex-related diseases that are more common to one sex. Indeed differences in incidence, presentation, and course of disease between males and females are common. Eye disease is no exception, and differences between the sexes are nowhere more apparent than in the field of ocular inflammation. Females as a gender group have heightened immune responses not only to foreign antigens but also to self-antigens. Thus there is a greater preponderance of autoimmune disorders including noninfectious uveitis in women than in men. This issue will present and discuss gender differences in infectious and common noninfectious uveitis. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Infectious uveitis
  • Behcet’s disease
  • Birdshot chorioretinopathy and other white dot syndromes
  • Connective diseases
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Pregnancy and uveitis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Spondyloarthropathies
  • Sympathetic ophthalmia and Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada disease
