ADNIV is a rare ocular inflammatory disease that develops slowly over the course of decades to cause significant and devastating blindness. It is characterized by progressive uveitis, retinal pigmentation and degeneration, cystoid macular edema (CME), neovascularization of the retina and iris, vitreous hemorrhage (VH) and tractional retinal detachment (TRD). There have been three independently reported families with genetically-confirmed ADNIV.
