Abstract
For patients suffering from uveitis, cystoid macular edema (CME) is a leading cause of vision loss. Depending upon the severity and duration of the CME, the loss of vision may or may not be reversible. Interferon alphas are a family of cytokines produced by white blood cells which have antiviral, antiproliferative, and immunomodulatory properties. Systemic interferon alpha-2a has demonstrated efficacy in ocular inflammatory disease of non-infectious cause, most notably Behcet?s disease associated uveitis. Increasingly, the efficacy of systemically administered interferon alphas for uveitic CME, both in the setting of active and inactive uveitis, is being elucidated. The author presents his experience, both published and non-published, with systemic interferon alpha-2b for refractory uveitic CME. The discussion will include a careful analysis of the manifold risks and adverse events associated with interferon alpha-2b and the clinical scenarios in which such a treatment may be considered
