Abstract

PURPOSE: To describe a patient with sarcoid uveitis who developed bilateral vitelliform lesions with subretinal fluid that responded to immune suppression on three occasions. METHODS: Chart review was performed on a single patient to collect all relevant clinical information and diagnostic imaging. RESULTS: A case of sarcoidosis with acquired vitelliform lesions is described. CONCLUSION: Patients with ocular sarcoidosis can rarely develop vitelliform lesions. Our patient responded to systemic immune suppression.
