Genetic and non-genetic factors affecting the visual outcome of ocular Behcet’s disease.


CONCLUSION: Longer duration of uveitis, posterior uveitis, male gender, cataract, and glaucoma were found to be associated with poor visual outcome in BD-related uveitis. HLA-B∗51 was associated with NTB in patients with posterior uveitis. HLA-A∗26:01 showed no association with VI, LUV, or NTB, however, was strongly associated with posterior uveitis.
