    OCT Findings in Birdshot Chorioretinitis: A Glimpse Into Retinal Disease Evolution

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Birdshot chorioretinitis is a rare disease independently involving the retina and the choroid. Retinal involvement has deleterious functional consequences. This study aimed to follow retinal profiles in early (< 1 year, untreated), intermediate (1 to 6 years, receiving therapy), and late (> 6 years) birdshot chorioretinitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Optical coherence tomography images were retrospectively evaluated in 28 eyes and retinal thickness was calculated in the foveola, parafoveal nasal, and temporal area; nasal and temporal mid-peripheral macula; and nasal and temporal periphery of the macula. RESULTS: Retinal thickness was significantly elevated in early birdshot chorioretinitis because of diffuse exudative ...
