What are some of the most common reasons that inflammatory cells can show up in the vitreous??

I'm thinking pars planitis, but there are probably other reasons...

Thanks,

Pigmented cells: in anterior and/or posterior vitreous= retinal tear +/- RD
white cells: anterior vitreous= spillover from A/C inflammation, any intermediate and/or posterior uveitis.
