Abstract

We present a 38-year-old woman with bilateral serous retinal detachments and bilateral panuveitis on fundoscopic exam. CT of the orbits and MRI scans revealed bilateral ocular choroidal thickening and bilateral retinal detachments; however, no other CNS or meningeal lesion was detected. This patient met the clinical criteria for Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) Syndrome. Review of VKH syndrome as well as the radiographic findings will be discussed.
