Abstract

PURPOSE:

The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical use of ultra-widefield angiography (UWFA) in uveitis.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

We showed the UWFA and traditional 55° fluorescein angiography (FA) of four cases with Eales' disease, idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysms, and neuroretinitis syndrome, Behçet's disease, and idiopathic panuveitis in a tertiary medical center. Comparison of UWFA with traditional 55°FA in the diagnosis and management of uveitis and review of the literature is also presented.

RESULTS:

Ultra-widefield FA revealed far-peripheral vascular imaging. This information would not have been easily obtained from traditional FA. With more information of the peripheral retina, it may facilitate appropriate diagnosis and monitoring, and the management may be revised.

CONCLUSION:

University of Western Australia played an important role to confirm the diagnosis of uveitis and to determine the corresponding treatment.

KEYWORDS:

Eales' disease; and neuroretinitis; aneurysms; idiopathic retinal vasculitis; intraocular tuberculosis; ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography; ultra-widefield indocyanine green angiography
