Definition of Uveitis:

A group of inflammatory diseases that produce swelling and destroy eye tissue.  Not normally serious, they can lead to slight vision loss or even blindness in severe cases.  Anterior uveitis is most common, least serious, and occurs in the front of the eye.  Intermediate uveitis occurs in the vitreous ('middle' of the eye).  Posterior uveitis (also called choroiditis or chorioretinitis) is the least common form, occurring mainly in the back of the eye and often affecting both the retina and the choroid.  Pan-uveitis affects all three major parts of the eye.

Also: Anterior Uveitis, Chorioretinitis, Choroiditis, Intermediate Uveitis, Pan-Uveitis, Panuveitis Uveitis, Posterior Uveitis
