Abstract


Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada (VKH) disease is an inflammatory and autoimmune condition characterized by panuveitis, serous retinal detachments, and extraocular manifestations of the auditory, integumentary, and central nervous systems (CNS). Early diagnosis and prompt and adequate treatment with immuno-suppressive agents (corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive drugs) may halt disease progression and prevent recurrences and vision loss. The purpose of this article is to report a case of VKH.


Keywords
