Subretinal fibrosis and uveitis syndrome associated with ulcerative colitis.

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ]

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: We report a case of subretinal fibrosis and panuveitis syndrome as an extraintestinal manifestation of ulcerative colitis.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We present an interventional case report of a 40-year-old female patient with inactive ulcerative colitis referred to our center for refractory uveitis in her right eye.

RESULTS/FINDINGS: She was diagnosed with subretinal fibrosis and uveitis syndrome after work-up ruled out tuberculosis, bartonellosis, Lyme disease, and sarcoidosis. Right eye multifocal choroiditis and panuveitis syndrome with subretinal fibrosis was diagnosed, and posterior pole subretinal fibrosis caused a 90% loss of visual efficiency. She had concurrent dermatological manifestations but no gastrointestinal symptoms. One year of immunosuppressive therapy with methotrexate (7.5 mg/week) controlled ocular inflammation. Two colitis episodes, with no visual involvement, were recorded during follow-up. Her final, right-eye, best-corrected visual acuity remained stable at 0.160 due to scarring sequela after 7 years of follow-up.

INTERPRETATION/CONCLUSION: Subretinal fibrosis and uveitis syndrome can occur as a sight-threatening extraintestinal manifestation of ulcerative colitis.
