Laboratory of Immunobiology, Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Transplantation, Rega Institute for Medical Research, University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Uveitis associated with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is a bilateral, chronic, granulomatous autoimmune disease associated with vitiligo, poliosis, alopecia, and meningeal and auditory manifestations. The disease affects pigmented races with a predisposing genetic background. Evidence has been provided that the clinical manifestations are caused by a T-lymphocyte-mediated autoimmune response directed against antigens associated with melanocytes in the target organs.

The morphology of keratic precipitates (KPs) may yield important diagnostic clues. However, KPs have not been described in a standardized manner and the traditional classification of granulomatous or non-granulomatous KPs is not helpful in differentiating infectious from noninfectious uveitis. A granulomatous uveitis may initially appear non-granulomatous. Read More
