To describe spectral-domain Optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in Mexican-Mestizo patients with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.
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.
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.
Spectral-domain OCT is a useful (and non-invasive) tool to determine the retina and EPR changes in the different stages of VKH diseases.
