Abstract

Purpose: : To describe spectral-domain Optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in Mexican-Mestizo patients with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.

Methods: : Descriptive, retrospective study. We reviewed the OCT studies of all consecutive VKH patients seen in a six month period at the Clinic. All structural characteristics of the retina and retina pigment epithelium (RPE) were described.

Results: : We included 70 eyes of 35 patients. Six eyes were in acute, 61 were in convalescent and 3 were in recurrence stage. We found 6 eyes with serous retinal detachment, epiretinal membrane in 7 eyes, RPE hypertrophy in 6 eyes, RPE detachment in 3 eyes, subretinal fibrosis in 7 eyes, neovascular membrane in 2 eyes and cystoid macular edema in 1 eye. A normal OCT study was found in 26 eyes.

Conclusions: : Spectral-domain OCT is a useful (and non-invasive) tool to determine the retina and EPR changes in the different stages of VKH diseases.
