dc.description.abstractPurpose: To evaluate clinical and demographic features of Vogt-Kayanagi-Harada disease (VKH) disease in Turkish patients and compare them with previously published data. Methods: Demographic and clinical features of 32 patients diagnosed as VKH in a tertiary referral center were retrospectively reviewed. Results: The mean age at presentation was 33.6 +/- 10.4 years. Seventy-five percent of the patients were female and 62.5% of the patients presented during the last 2 years. The disease was complete in 31.2%, incomplete in 50%, and probable in 18.8% of the patients. The clinical course was acute in 50%, chronic recurrent in 34.4%, and chronic in 15.6%. The most common findings were bilateral serous retinal detachment +/- papillitis in acute cases and retinal pigment epithelial changes of the macula in chronic cases. Conclusions: Although rare in Turkey, VKH disease seems to have increased during the last few years. The disease is incomplete and acute in half of the patients and has a quite good visual prognosis.en_US
