—In the book review section of the Archives (80:153 [July] 1968), Emil Wirostko, MD, seems to give the impression that the steroids have not significantly contributed to the therapy of uveitis. This may have been merely an unfortunate choice of words or sentence structure.It has been my experience that steroids offer the only consistently effective therapy for most cases of uveitis—and in addition have proved to be of value even in those cases in which specific therapy can be directed at a known etiological agent.Other readers have sent in similar comments to this effect.—Ed.
