Retinal vasculitis can be an isolated condition or a complication of local or systemic inflammatory disorders characterized by inflammation of the retinal vessels. It is a sight-threatening condition associated with various infective, auto-immune, inflammatory or neoplastic disorders. Retinal vasculitis is used as a descriptive term to explain a conglomerate of typical clinical manifestations including perivascular sheathing or cuffing, vascular leakage and/or occlusion. It may be associated with signs of retinal ischemia, including cotton-wool spots and intra-retinal hemorrhage.
