AbstractVogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) syndrome is an uncommon acute ophthalmological disorder, characterised by bilateral serous retinal detachment with diffuse choroiditis, in association with specific extra-ocular manifestations. We describe a patient with unequivocal VKH syndrome arising 49 days after matched unrelated donor bone marrow transplantation (BMT) performed as treatment for severe aplastic anaemia. The visual symptoms and retinal changes responded well to corticosteroids. The haematological relevance of VKH syndrome is to distinguish it from retinitis due to cytomegalovirus, which requires different therapy and has a far worse visual prognosis.
