Abstract

Purpose: To investigate the clinical features of 51 uveitis patients with psoriasis in China.

Methods: The psoriasis type, demographics, ocular findings, auxiliary examination findings, complications, and therapeutic effects were analyzed.

Results: A total of 37 male and 14 female uveitis patients with psoriasis were classified into four groups: psoriasis vulgaris (29 cases); psoriatic arthritis (15 cases); psoriatic erythroderma (6 cases); and pustular psoriasis (1 case). The onset age of psoriasis was younger than for uveitis (p <0.001). Anterior uveitis, panuveitis, and posterior uveitis was observed in 58.8%, 35.3%, and 5.9% of the patients, respectively. Hypopyon was more frequently noted in the group with psoriatic arthritis (p = 0.007). Optic disc staining was more frequently noted in the group with psoriatic erythroderma (p = 0.029). Significant visual improvement was observed in 17 patients.

Conclusions: Uveitis can be associated with various types of psoriasis in China, but was most frequently observed in patients with psoriasis vulgaris and psoriatic arthritis.
