If you have uveitis caused by autoimmune disease ,then will it show the symptoms of uveitis or does it show the symptoms of uveitis along with that of the autoimmune disease ?

Hard to answer: The uveitis could occur alone or with other areas of the body involved. Am unsure what specifically you wish to understand, and do not really have a way to analyze this based on information presented. A far better approach would involve a Concierge appt. here on HT site.

Uveitis: Uveitis can be the first sign of an autoimmune disease. It may or may not go along with flares of existing autoimmune disease. You will wish to raise this concern with your ophthalmologist as well as warning signs to watch out for. Sometimes there are none.
