Abstract

Purpose : To quantify the frequency of ocular involvement in a large South Florida population of individuals with sarcoidosis and describe the ocular findings.

Methods : Retrospective review of charts.

Results : 13 individuals (13%) had ocular involvement out of a total of 100 individuals with sarcoidosis. Mean age of the 13 individuals was 57 ±15 years; 69% were female and 62% were white. Nine had bilateral ocular involvement while 4 had unilateral findings. Eleven had a history of uveitis, 9 which were characterized as chronic, 1 as acute, and 1 could not be further subtyped. Two had anterior uveitis, 1 anterior-intermediate uveitis, 2 posterior uveitis, and 6 panuveitis. All those with posterior and panuveitis had choroidal involvement in the form of punched out choroidal lesions. Six individuals had associated structural complications (3 macular edema, 1 choroidal neovascularization, 2 glaucoma, 1 retinal detachment). Seven of these individuals had moderate or worse (<20/70) vision in at least one eye due to ocular involvement of disease. Two individuals had a history of orbital inflammation and both maintained good vision.

Conclusions : Ocular manifestations occurred in a minority of individuals seen in a sarcoidosis clinic in South Florida. Uveitis was the most common ocular manifestation.
