  1. I tend to handle children with uveitis/iritis a little differently than adults. In a child, unless I think it is a traumatic iritis, I would at very least obtain RF and ANA labs since there is such a high rate of anterior iritis (frequently with posterior synechiae) associated with childhood rheumatoid arthritis which may be undiagnosed. The other most common form of uveitis that I see in children in Pars Planitis but I can usually see characteristic vitreous cells, vitreous condensations and inferior “snow-banking”
