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)
When following Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada disease (VKH), indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) is crucial in the subacute and convalescent stages of the disease in order to detect subclinical choroiditis and prevent the development of ‘sunset glow’ fundus. Hypofluorescent dark dots (HDDs) indicate persisting granulomas in the choroid. However, probably as a result(More)
Fuchs’ uveitis is very often diagnosed with substantial delay, which is at the origin of deleterious effects such as unnecessary treatment and its consequences. The aim of this study was to analyse the type and frequency of posterior inflammatory and fluorescein angiographic signs in Fuchs’ uveitis in conjunction with other clinical signs. Patients seen at(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to analyze indocyanine green angiographic (ICGA) findings in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease and to determine their value in assessing choroidal involvement as well as their use for diagnostic and follow-up purposes. DESIGN Retrospective and prospective observational, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Ten(More)
Purpose To evaluate clinical and angiographic differences in patients with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease during the early 4-month treatment phase with high- or medium-dose systemic corticosteroid therapy. Methods VKH patients treated at the Centre for Ophthalmic Specialized Care, Lausanne, Switzerland (n = 4), or the Department of Ophthalmology, Tokyo(More)
BACKGROUND By allowing one to detect fluorescence beyond the retinal pigment epithelium, indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) has made it possible to analyse the choroidal vessels. Our aim was to characterize choroidal vasculitis in posterior uveitis using ICGA. METHODS Charts of active posterior uveitis patients with a specific diagnosis seen in the(More)
AIM The Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) syndrome is characterized by a bilateral granulomatous uveitis with exudative retinal detachments associated with systemic manifestations such as meningeal signs, cutaneous signs (poliosis, alopecia and vitiligo) and dysacousis. VKH is relatively unfrequent in Europe and Switzerland. Therefore diagnosis is often reached(More)
Single-dose administration of fleroxacin was evaluated as a means of preventing foreign body infection due to staphylococci. Tissue cages were implanted into guinea pigs and subsequently infected (100% rate) with 10(2) or more CFU of Staphylococcus aureus Wood 46. When a single dose of 30 mg of fleroxacin or vancomycin per kg of body weight was administered(More)
