Purpose Firstly, to give a review of characteristic indocyanine green angiographic (ICGA) signs in Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada (VKH) disease and, secondly, to determine the utility of ICG angiography in the assessment and follow-up of choroidal inflammatory activity during initial high-dose inflammation suppressive therapy and during the tapering of therapy.(More)
To report the case of a patient initially diagnosed with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE), characterized by relentless evolution despite high-dose steroid therapy. An interferon-gamma release assay (IGRA) indicated a diagnosis of suspected tuberculous choriocapillaritis and the disease responded only to massive inflammation(More)
PURPOSE To test interobserver agreement in the fluorescein/indocyanine green angiography (FA/ICGA) scoring system for uveitis. METHODS Four observers scored 32 dual FA/ICGAs. Spearman rank correlation was used to analyze correlation between pairs of observers in scores assigned to angiographic signs. Kappa statistics were used to test agreement between(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to investigate the natural evolution of fundus autofluorescence (FAF) findings in eyes with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome. METHODS This was a retrospective, observational case series of nine eyes of eight consecutive patients with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome who underwent color fundus photographs,(More)
We aimed to describe imaging findings in primary inflammatory choriocapillaropathies (PICCPs) after a photobleaching process. 2Images from six consecutive cases of patients affected by PICCPs (four with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome and two with multifocal choroiditis) were reviewed. Patients underwent fundus autofluorescence (FAF), fluorescein(More)
PURPOSE To describe multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS)-related foveal granularity features on different imaging modalities. METHODS Clinical and multi-imaging files from five patients affected by MEWDS were reviewed. Each image set included: blue fundus autofluorescence (BAF), near-infrared fundus autofluorescence (NIR-FAF), spectral-domain(More)
In its typical form and when seen at onset, Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) is characterized by easily recognizable signs that allow diagnosis without difficulty. In cases that do not have acute onset, that are seen at a later stage or that do not show the complete set of signs, appraisal is more difficult and diagnosis may cause difficulties. We present here a(More)
