  • Look Inside

A 11-year-old girl presented with decreased visu-al acuity, iridocyclitis and elevated intraocular pressure in both eyes. She had been suffering from pauciarticular type of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since the age of 5 years. Ophthalmoscopy showed multiple yellowish-white flecked deposits in the subretinal space. Systemic corticosteroid and aspi-rin resulted in disappearance of iridocyclitis, disc edema and subretinal lesions. Bilateral panuveitis recurred 3 years later. Fluorescein angiography during the initial phase of the disease showed leak-age of dye from the disc and retinal vessels. Sub-retinal flecked lesions appeared as hypofluorescent patches. These subretinal lesions showed dye stain-ing over the following 9 years.
