PURPOSE: To analyze the change in refractive error and the axial length of chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease. METHODS: Medical records of 106 eyes of 54 adult VKH patients were analyzed. The refractive error and the axial length were compared between the baseline (defined as the time point at least 2 weeks after acute stage of VKH) and the final visit. The rate of the eyes with significant myopia progression [defined as refraction change toward myopia > 1 diopter (D)] was examined...

BACKGROUND This study analyzed the macular 3D-OCT images of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH) in uveitis, explored the characteristics of 3D-OCT images of the macular region of VKH, and assessed which characteristics contribute most to VKH diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS The 3D-OCT examination of 25 cases of VKH was performed on the macular area, and the image characteristics were analyzed. RESULTS Our study included a total of 50 eyes from 25 cases of VKH patients, 10 males and 15 females, aged 17 to 64 years, mean (39...

BACKGROUND: Subretinal fibrosis (SRF) is a vision-threatening complication of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH). It has long been recognized as a sequela of chronic inflammation. The developmental process of SRF, however, has not been described. The purpose of this study is to provide longitudinal observations of SRF in VKH. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 10 VKH patients referred to our group between January 2008 and September 2015 at acute uveitic stage with SRF at presentation or who developed SRF during follow up...

We herein report a case of a 31-year-old Japanese man who simultaneously had a positive influenza A virus antigen test result and Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKHD), demonstrated by both diffuse multiple early hyperfluorescent points on fluorescein fundus photography and serous retinal detachments on optical coherence tomography. He had meningitis. It was difficult to determine whether the main cause of meningitis was influenza A or VKHD. After initial treatment with peramivir for influenza A and then methylprednisolone pulse with subsequent corticosteroid therapy for VKHD, his symptoms improved gradually...

The present study was designed to explore the interrelationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily (TNFSF) and its respective receptor superfamily (TNFRSF) genes and Behcet's disease (BD) and Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome (VKH) in Han Chinese. The study sample included 796 patients with BD, 792 patients with VKH syndrome, and 1604 healthy controls. The genotyping of 35 SNPs was performed by MassARRAY platform (Sequenom), iPLEX Gold Assay, PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay and TaqMan SNP assay...

INTRODUCTION: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease is a multisystem disorder characterized by a bilateral granulomatous panuveitis. Multiple therapeutic regimens have been used to control inflammation in acute uveitic stage to prevent irreversible visual loss. The purpose of this paper is to compare the effect, on functional and anatomic outcomes, of early treatment with standard corticotherapy vs. corticotherapy plus immunosuppressive (IMT) therapy in acute Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (Group A vs Group B)...

Laurel J Gershwin
There are many autoimmune diseases that are recognized in domestic animals. The descriptions of diseases provide examples of the magnitude of immune targets and the variable nature of autoimmune diseases. Other autoimmune diseases that are recognized in dogs, cats, and horses include immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, VKH (Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada) ocular disease (dogs), and Evans syndrome (which includes both immune-mediated anemia and immune-mediated thrombocytopenia).

PURPOSE: To investigate fundus abnormalities in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease by a noninvasive tool, multispectral imaging (MSI). METHODS: A total of 77 patients with VKH and 163 healthy controls were enrolled between January and April 2015. The MSI findings were evaluated in combination with fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA), optical coherent tomography (OCT) and fundus photography (FP). Additionally, we compared extent of exposure of choroidal blood vessels between patients with VKH and healthy controls to evaluate retinal transmission function...

Vogt Koyanagi Harada (VKH) is an autoimmune disease with widespread systemic manifestations. It typically presents with bilateral sudden painless loss of vision. It is mainly characterized by serous retinal detachment, iridocyclitis and choroidal swelling. The disease is more common in females and maximus incidence occurs in the age group of 30 to 40 years. We present a case of a 16-year-old girl who presented with sudden bilateral painless loss of vision. Fundus examination and OCT scanning confirmed bilateral serous retinal detachment...

Behcet's disease (BD) and Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease (VKH) are systemic and recurrent autoimmune diseases associated with abnormal T cell immune response. Complement 3a receptor (C3aR) and complement 5a receptor (C5aR) have been reported to be involved in T cell mediated autoimmune disease. This study aimed to investigate the role of C3aR and C5aR in these two diseases. The C3aR expression in PBMCs was increased in patients with active BD (aBD) and active VKH (aVKH). No statistical difference was found concerning the expression of C5aR in PBMCs between patients with aBD or aVKH and normal controls...

The author presents a retrospective case report of a 54-year-old male with ipilimumab (Yervoy; Bristol-Myers Squibb, New York City, NY)-induced Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada Disease (VKH), which consisted of uveitis, optic neuritis, and choroiditis that was successfully treated with oral dexamethasone. The patient demonstrated resolution of uveitis, optic neuritis, and choroiditis 1 month following initiation of oral dexamethasone. Ipilimumab is a recently approved therapy for malignant melanoma. Reports have identified that VKH disease is a potential side effect of the medication...
