Abstract

Extra‐intestinal manifestations (EIM) of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are common in both Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, occurring in 25‐40% of patients with confirmed diagnosis [1]. Ocular complications may occur in up to 10% of cases most of which are nonspecific; however, in some patients significant ocular morbidity has been reported [2]. As most other EIM’s of IBD, uveitis may be the presenting symptom during active bowel disease, dormant periods, or may precede the diagnoses of IBD. Common presenting symptoms include pain, photophobia, and blurred vision. On exam, patients usually have diminishing visual acuity (VA), hyperemia, perikeratic injection, exudates in the anterior chamber, keratic precipitates, and iris involvement [3-5]. As such, clinical suspicion should be high when managing a patient who presents with such symptoms, regardless of an official diagnosis of IBD.
