  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 28-year-old male presented with visual blurring and headache since 2 days before. He had past history of recurrent aphthous stomatitis and pustules in the skin. Both eyes showed iritis and hyperemia of the optic disc. The left eye showed serous detachment in the posterior fundus area. Fluorescein angiography showed multiple dye leakage from the choroid in the early phase and dye pooling in the late phase. Pleocytosis was present in the cerebrospinal fluid. The serous detachment started to regress one week later followed by retinal vasculitis in both eyes. The general course of the disease and systemic features were suggestive of incomplete type of Behçet disease rather than Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.
