The infectious uveitides encompasses a wide array of potential pathogens with heterogeneous presentations. In an increasingly global ophthalmic world with new emerging infections, this area of ophthalmology demands the attention of all clinicians, any one of whom may encounter patients with puzzling presentations related to infectious causes.
The Infectious Uveitis Treatment Algorithm Network (TITAN) strives to establish evidence and experience based guidelines for the management of all patients with intraocular infectious diseases. TITIAN employs the Delphi method originally conceived in the 1950s by Olaf Helmer and Norman Dalkey of the Rand Corporation to achieve group consensus on the treatment algorithm for the infectious uveitides through iterations of online questionnaires and scientific discussion via teleconference.
It is our genuine hope these guidelines will serve as an important resource for clinicians managing patients with infectious uveitides and that you may find them as enlightening as we have found developing them to be.
