Intravitreal bevacizumab for choroidal neovascularization secondary to Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome.

BACKGROUND: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) syndrome is characterized by bilateral diffuse uveitis associated with auditory, neurological, and cutaneous signs and symptoms. VKH syndrome is a cell-mediated autoimmune disease against melanocytes. Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) occurs in 15% of VKH patients and is associated with poor visual prognosis.

CASES: We report on two patients with VKH syndrome and CNV that were treated with intravitreal bevacizumab.

OBSERVATIONS: One of the VKH patients also had an extrafoveal CNV membrane and underwent multiple intravitreal injections of bevacizumab in combination with laser photocoagulation, with subsequent improvement in visual acuity. The second had a subfoveal CNV that responded to a single intravitreal injection of bevacizumab.

CONCLUSION: Intravitreal bevacizumab may be a useful drug to treat CNV in eyes with VKH syndrome.
