Unilateral Normotensive Angle Closure as a Presenting Feature of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada Disease
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health,
We describe an atypical presentation of probable Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada Disease with unilateral angle closure and normal intraocular pressure in a young male. On Ultrasonographic Biomicroscopy, there was anterior rotation of ciliary processes with supraciliary effusion. Fundus Fluorescein Angiography showed early phase hyperfluorescent spots followed by leakage and pooling, typical of VKHD. The angle closure responded to intravenous methyl prednisolone followed by tapered oral steroids. It is necessary for the ophthalmologist to be aware of this presentation so that there is no delay in initiating the required therapy and the patient does not have to undergo various unnecessary procedures like laser iridotomies.
