To evaluate an describe vitreo-retinal interactions by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Fuchs’ uveitis.
Retrospective study including 29 patients (31 eyes) with Fuchs’ uveitis who underwent OCT evaluation. Vitreo-retinal interface was analyzed and morphological changes described and compared to the normal controlateral eye (except 2 bilateral cases).
Vitreo-retinal modifications were seen on OCT in 90% of Fuchs’ uveitis patients. The main vitreo-retinal interactions that could be described were : vitreous hyperreflective dots (45%), thickening of posterior hyaloid (38.7%), posterior vitreous detachement (32.3%), vitreo-retinal traction (29%), epiretinal membrane (25.8%). OCT examination was normal in 9.6% of cases.
Vitreous involvement is a characteristic feature of Fuchs’ uveitis with cellular infiltration and/or vitreous opacification, moreover, these OCT findings show that there is a high prevalence of vitreoretinal abnormalities in Fuchs’ uveitis.
