Choroiditis is a condition where the choroid is inflamed. [1]

When it presents in combination with retinitis (inflammation of the retina), the condition is known as chorioretinitis. [2]

The choroid is part of the uvea, so choroiditis can be considered a type of uveitis. However, the retina is not part of the uvea.
