Abstract

PURPOSE:

To describe restoration of retinal architecture following systemic immunosuppressive treatment in a patient with birdshot chorioretinopathy (BSCR).

DESIGN:

Case report.

METHODS:

A patient with BSCR and vitritis, reduced electroretinographic responses, and a constricted visual field was treated with prednisone and mycophenolate mofetil.

RESULTS:

Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) at baseline demonstrated a disruption of retinal architecture. After 4 months of treatment retinal architecture, as visualized on SD-OCT, was restored to normal.

CONCLUSIONS:

Treatment of BSCR with systemic immunosuppression can result in restoration of disrupted retinal architecture. This structural improvement can be visualized and assessed using SD-OCT.
