Purpose: To evaluate macular abnormalities in VKH by OCT. Methods: Thirty patients (90% female) had their macular anatomic status evaluated by OCT. Protocol was approved by ethical committee and all patients signed an informed consent prior entry into the study. Results: OCT findings comprised focal atrophic areas (30%), serous retinal detachment (36,6%), choroidal neovascularization (5,0%), subretinal fibrosis (6,6%), cystoid macular edema (3,3%), as well as choroidal fluid image (36,6%). Conclusions: OCT was useful to demonstrate additional morphological findings and persistent macular alterations in spite of a favorable visual acuity outcome. Thus cross-sectional OCT images may increase understanding of the pathophysiology of VKH and the disease monitoring might be achieved with such diagnostic tool.
