Purpose: To report the results of intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide in two eyes of a patient with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.
Methods: A 24-year-old woman with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome was treated with a single 4-mg dose of intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide in both eyes.
Results: On the seventh day after injection, visual acuity improved from 20/50 to 20/20 in the right eye and from 20/100 to 20/32 in the left. One month after injection, visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/32 in the left, and fluorescein angiography showed that serous detachment had almost completely resorbed. The ocular examination remained stable during the 8-month follow-up period.
Conclusions: In this study, a prompt improvement in the clinical picture of a patient with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome after intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection was described. The results suggest that intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection may be an additional tool in the treatment of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.
