    [RC] uveitis - Libby & Quentin Llop

        Not contagious, very serious (can lead to blindness), allergic basis.
    Sometimes the allergy is related to a locally common bacteria in the
    environment; this does not, however, make it contagious.  Like other
    allergies, it tends to run in families.  Every region of the country has its
    own causes & best management plans.  In our region, vaccinating against
    Leptospirosis seems to reduce the incidence.
