This study was designed to assess results of
Lyme serology among all the specific tests routinely performed for exploring uveitis.
Sixty-seven patients examined for uveitis had a serological diagnosis of
disease with haemagglutination test and ELISA IgG test. This group included 34 patients with unclassified uveitis. Thirty-seven healty individuals served as control subjects.
There was no statistical difference between the three groups in terms of positive serological diagnosis occurrence: control subjects (13.5%), patients with classified uveitis (12.1%) and patients with unclassified uveitis (11.8%).
It appears to be more adequate to reserve this serological test for
disease for patients who have a suggestive history or additional symptoms.
