Evaluate outcomes from severe ocular complications of juvenile idiopathic arthritis following surgery. Eleven eyes of 7 patients underwent complete vitrectomy and peeling of the inner limiting membrane. Inclusion criteria were: anteroposterior segment involvement, hypotony, inflammation control of less than 3 months, compliance issues, rapidly progressive disease. Phacoemulsification was allowed if the patient was >6 years old and inflammation free >3 months. The alternative was a complete lensectomy. Visual acuity improved from a logMAR of 1.48 to 0.37 (p < 0.0001), and 0.20 at 6 and 12 months (p < 0.0001). No flare-up was observed within the first 6 months. Five eyes developed inflammation between 7 and 19 months. Glaucoma developed in 5 eyes at a median of 16 months. No patient developed cystoid macular edema. Extensive pars plana vitrectomy and cataract extraction can lead to significant improvement in visual acuity. Patients continue to require long-term immunosuppression and adequate follow-up. 2014 S.
