The intraocular CD4/CD8 ratio in a black South African patient with Behçet’s disease uveitis

  • A Makgotloe

Abstract

A 33-year-old black South African male patient was referred to our uveitis service with a 5-year history of panuveitis refractory to treatment. He had an associated history of recurrent mouth and genital ulcers, predating the uveitis history by about 2 years. The measurement of his intraocular CD4/CD8 ratio helped make a diagnosis of Behçet’s disease uveitis.
