Objectives: To estimate the prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA) and the clinical features of human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-B27-associated acute anterior uveitis (HLA-B27 uveitis) in Chinese patients.

Females tended to have a higher frequency of attack than males, and those with a disease course of less than 5 years showed more uveitis recurrence.
