Description

So you think rheumatology is all about joint pain? Think again. Rheumatologists treat a wide array of autoimmune conditions affecting nearly every part of the body- even the eyes. Uveitis is an inflammatory eye condition that can be caused by infection, underlying autoimmune diseases such as juvenile arthritis or sarcoidosis, or as an idiopathic disease. Untreated it can lead to cataracts, glaucoma and even blindness. Listen as Ashely Cooper, MD, pediatric rheumatologist, discusses childhood uveitis and how Children's Mercy Kansas City is improving care for kids with chronic uveitis.
