Abstract

Although much has been written on this subject in the last few years, and although many scientific investigations have been made as to etiology and numerous methods of treatment tried, unfortunately in many cases the cause or causes of the disease remain obscure, and the treatment unsatisfactory. In this country de Schweinitz, in particular, has given the subject of uveitis, in its various forms, much attention; he has made special investigations as to the etiology, and has by his many valuable contributions and discussions done much to clear up a complex problem. A valuable symposium on the subject of uveitis was presented before the Section on Ophthalmology of the American Medical Association in 1902, de Schweinitz, Woods, Friedenwald, Hansell, Wilder, Woodruff and Marple contributing.1 Irons and Brown, Reber, Zentmayer, Frances, Bordley and Dwyer and others have made valuable contributions on the subject.
