    Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Ocular Syphilis Involving the Posterior Segment of the Eye

    Purpose : To analyse posterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in ocular syphilis. Methods : Medical records of 54 patients presenting consecutively with syphilitic uveitis were reviewed. Vitreous, retina and choroid (one eye/patient) were assessed by spectral-domain OCT on presentation (54 eyes) and after treatment (31 eyes). Improvement in signs and associations between presenting signs and final best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were determined by McNemar's and Fisher's exact tests. Results : Early inner retinal OCT findings included hyperreflective dots ( n = 49, 91%), tongue-like projections ( n = 44, 81%) and large rounded spots ( n = 41, 76%). Common outer retinal findings ...
