Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: To report a pediatric case with presumed ocular sarcoidosis presented with bilateral corneal infiltrates and uveitis.
DESIGN: Single case report.
METHODS: A 9-year-old girl presented with a 1-month history of blurred vision and redness in both eyes. Ophthalmologic evaluation revealed midstromal infiltrates in cornea, granulomatous anterior uveitis, vitritis, snowball opacities, and localized perivenous exudates.
RESULTS: She was treated with topical and oral steroids. During steroid tapering, oral cyclosporine A therapy was added.
CONCLUSION: In patients with corneal infiltrates and uveitis, sarcoidosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
