Abstract

Abstract We measured the serum levels of sialic acid in 12 patients with idiopathic acute iridocyclitis and 18 normal controls. Sialic acid levels were significantly elevated in the patients with idiopathic acute iridocyclitis. Since animal studies have shown that intraocular inflammation alone cannot elevate serum level of sialic acid, the results of our study suggest that idiopathic acute iridocyclitis may be a multiorgan disease with systemic effects. 1993 Institution Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica
