1(57) Persistent postoperative inflammation- an analysis. Chief Author: Dr.Namita Anagol, Presenting Author: Dr.Deepthi Bhat, Dr.SriGanesh Dr.Sathish Prabhu Dr.Vivek Kedia Dr.Kalpesh Jain Aim: To evaluate the etiology of prolonged post operative uveitis and the occurrence of the HLA B 27 haplotype in patients with persistent post operative uveitis. Methods: A retrospective analysis of 31 eyes of 23 patients with prolonged post operative inflammati on following uneventful topical clear corneal phacoemulsification was done from October 2010 to December 2011. A detailed history and relevant investigations were done. Results: 9 out of 23 patients were HLA B 27 positive, of which 2 patients showed signs of sacroilitis on X ray. 5 of the HLA B27 positive patients (55.5%) underwent immunosuppressive therapy. TB Gold was positive in 3 patients and they were started on AKT4 as per the advice of the pulmonologist. Most of the patients needed a prolonged course of steroids topically. Conclusions: The post operative inflammation was related to HLA B27 in (39.1%) patients. The most important observation in this study was the occurrence of HLA B 27 uveitis in the 6th decade for the first time.Though not routinely advised, HLA B 27 tests should be included in our investigations for prolonged postoperative uveitis. 2(64) Clinical Features, Investigations, Management and Outcome Of Uveitis In Neonates and Infants In South Indian Chief Author: Dr. Padmamalini Mahendra Das, Presenting Author: Dr. Naren Shetty, Dr.Pandu Aim: To study the etiology, clinical features, management and outcome of uveitis in neonates and infants Methods: Retrospective interventional cases series of 30 eyes of 15 children with uveitis in infantile age group studied from January 2008 to June 2012. All these children underwent detailed eye evaluation with hand held slit lamp, Retcam imaging, laboratory investigations in all cases with fluorescein angiography, opti cal coherence tomography in selected cases. Results: There were 10 males with age group ranging from 15 days to 4 months. 10 patients had bilateral disease. Anatomical diagnosis 13 cases had posterior uveitis and two cases had panuveitis. Etiological diagnosis included 6 toxoplasmosis, 1 rubella, 1 tuberculosis, 2 fungal infections, 1 mixed
