    Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography for the Characterization of Kyrieleis Exudates Involving Both the Fovea and Retinal Vessels

    In 1933 and 1950, Kyrieleis first described the presence of segmental white lesions in the walls of retinal arterioles in a case of ocular tuberculosis [ 1 ], [ 2 ]. These lesions are rarely seen and their pathophysiology remains debated although a relationship with infectious and inflammatory conditions has been proposed [ 3 ]. We report a patient who presented these lesions not only around retinal vessels very much alike those described in the original article but also involving the macular area and retinal veins. Since the patient suffered from dense vitreous haze as a result of an ocular toxoplasmosis relapse, this finding was revealed ...
