Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is a frequently occurring disease, at least in horses in Germany. A vitrectomy is predominantly the course of action in cases where a chronic intraocular leptospiral infection is present. In some cases, the clinical and ophthalmological diagnosis is not conclusive and ...

Abstract

In the ongoing discussion regarding aetiopathogenesis and therapeutic approach of equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) it was the aim of the present study to elucidate the relationship of leptospiral antibody detection in vitreous humor and success of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in horses with ERU. In a...
