dc.description.abstractPurpose: To determine the seroprevalence of various infectious agents in Thai patients with uveitis. Methods: Prospective study of 101 consecutive patients with uveitis, 100 HIV-infected retinitis patients, and 100 nonuveitis controls. Results: Antibodies against T. gondii were detected in 31/101 non-HIV patients, mostly with posterior uveitis and focal retinitis, and were significantly higher than in other groups examined. Antibodies for T. pallidum and Leptospira were observed more frequently in patients with HIV-infected retinitis. Active tuberculosis in non-HIV patients was not found. Conclusions: Seroprevalence of T. gondii antibodies in patients with non-HIV posterior uveitis was higher than in nonuveitis controls and HIV patients with retinitis.en_US
