Accept poster if oral is not possible ?Yes
PurposeTo describe clinical features, management and outcomes among patients diagnosed with vitreous hemorrhage associated with ocular inflammatory conditions
MethodsSixteen eyes of 15 patients diagnosed with vitreous hemorrhage complicating ocular inflammatory diseases were retrospectively reviewed.
ResultsMean age was 24 years (range, 6-66 years), 12 male and 3 female. The mean best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 1/80. Etiologies were Eales disease (4 patients; 26.66%), idiopathic intermediate uveitis (5 patients; 33.33%), Behçet’s disease (2 patients; 13.33%), ocular tuberculosis (2 patients; 13.33%), and ocular sarcoidosis (2 patient; 13.33%). Treatment modalities included systemic corticosteroids (n=15), immunosuppressive drugs (n=2), antitubercular therapy (n=4), intravitreal bevacizumab (n=4), scatter retinal laser photocoagulation to ischemic areas (n=6), pars plana vitrectomy (n=4), and transconjunctival cryotherapy (n=1). In 5 cases, vitreous hemorrhage resolved spontaneously. Mean BCVA was 20/63 at the end of follow-up.
ConclusionVitreous hemorrhage may complicate various intraocular inflammatory diseases. Early management of inflammation and hemorrhage is essential for better outcomes
