To determine the etiology of anterior uveitis in the Mexican population, as well as age and gender more commonly affected.
A descriptive, longitudinal and cross-sectional study included patients diagnosed with anterior uveitis between September 2007 and May 2013. Records of patients in the uveitis service were reviewed and data obtained from descriptive statistics were reviewed.
We studied 1353 patients with anterior uveitis, of which 83.14% were non-granulomatous and 16.85% granulomatous. The female was the most affected with 859 patients (63.48 %), while 494 male patients were reported. The most affected age group was the sixth decade of life, predominantly infectious granulomatous anterior uveitis. Later in August etiological subgroups, where the most frequent entities with the following number of patients were performed encompassed: idiopático147 (10 %) and not associated with granulomatous HLAB27 154 (11.3 %), no study granulomatous 228 (16.8 % ), no infectious granulomatous 53 (3.9 %) , non- granulomatous secondary to surgical trauma , 29 ( 2.14 % ) secondary to systemic disease 29 ( 2.14 %) granulomatous , infectious granulomatous and finally 35 (2.5 %).
As in the literature there is a large percentage of anterior uveitis where despite ancillary diagnostic studies can not determine the etiology classified as idiopathic.
