Abstract

Samples of aqueous humor were obtained from the anterior chamber of patients with uveitis. Bacterial L-forms, or cell wall deficient forms, were recovered from 11 of 19 eyes with unexplained uveitis. These bacterial variants were cultured on newer, highly specialized media and stained with acridine orange. This stain demonstrates fluorescence of nucleic acids under UV microscopy.
