Abstract: Pars planitis is the idiopathic form of intermediate uveitis; it most commonly affects persons between 5 and 40 years of age. In childhood, the disease is largely asymptomatic until in a well advanced stage with markedly reduced vision. Lack of early diagnosis and treatment may lead to permanent visual loss and amblyopia. AIM: To report on the clinical symptoms, complications, treatment and visual outcome of pars planitis in childhood. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients (8 boys and 2 girls) all younger than 16 years were diagnosed with and treated for pars planitis at our clinic between January 1993 and August 2004.
