Imaging of classic Dalén Fuchs nodules in sympathetic ophthalmia with spectral domain OCT
Sympathetic ophthalmia (SO) is a rare, severe condition that typically presents as bilateral diffuse granulomatous uveitis secondary to trauma in one eye. The variability of symptoms requires that diagnosis depends heavily on the correlation of these symptoms with relevant imaging. Visualisation of characteristic nodules seen between the Bruchs membrane and the retinal pigment epithelium, and the presence of Dalén Fuchs nodules, can be diagnostic when coupled with the clinical findings. This report discusses the use of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) to indicate the presence of Dalén Fuchs nodules, which have previously not been identified on OCT in a confirmed case of SO.
