ABSTRACT
A 78-year-old woman with a recurrent retinal detachment in the right eye presented 2 years after her last surgery with clinical and fluorescein angiographic evidence of sympathetic ophthalmia in the left eye. Fluorescein angiography showed discrete multifocal areas of central hypofluorescence with a hyperfluorescent ring. After immunosuppressive therapy, fluorescein angiography displayed multiple hypofluorescent spots without the hyperfluorescent collar. Prior to systemic and periocular corticosteroid therapy, indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) revealed multifocal hypo-fluorescent spots that became more prominent as the study progressed. The early stages of the posttreatment ICGA appeared normal, but the hypofluorescent spots reappeared in the late stage of ICGA. ICGA is a useful diagnostic adjunct to fluorescein angiography and clinical examination in helping to secure the diagnosis and monitor the treatment progress of sympathetic ophthalmia.
