Symposium: Diagnosis and Treatment of Ocular Sarcoidosis in 2007Organizer: Manabu Mochizuki
ABSTRACT Sarcoidosis is the leading cause of uveitis in Japan. Sarcoidosis is known to exhibit characteristic ocular mani-festations and systemic abnormalities which are helpful for its diagnosis. Recently, the diagnostic criteria for sarcoidosis were revised by the Japan Society of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders. The new di-agnostic criteria for ocular sarcoidosis were evaluated by ophthalmologists and are reported by Mami Ishihara. Although sarcoidosis is a major disease in regard to uveitis worldwide, there is no internationally accepted di-agnostic set of criteria available. To establish diagnostic criteria for ocular sarcoidosis acceptable internationally, the 1st International Workshop on Ocular Sarcoidosis was held in Tokyo in 2006. Hiroshi Takase introduced the details of the international diagnostic criteria for ocular sarcoidosis. Kohei Sonoda reported how to treat intraocu-lar inflammation in sarcoidosis and Nobuyuki Ohguro reported the treatment for ocular complications.
