We analyze the singular behavior of the Green's function for uniformly elliptic equations on smooth and bounded two dimensional domains. Then, we are able to generalize to the uniformly elliptic case some sharp estimates for Liouville type equations due to Brezis-Merle [7] and, in the same spirit of [3], a "mass" quantization result due to Y.Y. Li [21]. As a consequence, we obtain uniform a priori estimates for solutions of the corresponding Dirichlet problem. Then, we improve the standard existence theorem derived by direct minimization and, in the same spirit of [17] and [37], obtain the existence of Mountain Pass type solutions.
