CHORIORETINAL INFLAMMATORY DISEASES - Noninfectious Causes
Eales disease is characterized by periphlebitis, predominantly in the periphery.
This idiopathic peripheral obliterative vasculopathy leads to areas of capillary non-perfusion which may lead to the development of neovascularization in the periphery.
Recurrent vitreous hemorrhage is common.
Eales disease affects mostly healthy young males, usually between 20 and 30 years of age.
