The changes observed in serum proteins and their fractions in patients of Eales disease exhibit similarity with those observed in manifest tuber-culosis by various workers. There was no change in total proteins while albumin level decreased and globulins increased thus resulting in the reversal of albumin/globulin ratio. Amongst the fractions of globulins α 1 remain unchanged while α 2, β and y-fractions increased significantly. Albumin/α 2 ratio was also decreased. The prevalence of Eales disease was found more in persons belonging to poor economic status, amongst males and in younger age group. Although many common factors are observed in tuberculosis and Eales disease but more evidence is required to assign it a tuberculous etiology.
