Abstract
PURPOSE
We present three cases of atypical Harada's disease that exhibited different clinical courses. CASE SUMMARY: (Case 1) A 56-year-old male initially presented with typical findings of Harada's disease accompanied by exudative retinal detachment of the left eye. However, he did not show any signs and symptoms of Harada's disease in his right eye for 4 years. (Case 2) A 73-year-old male came to our clinic complaining of decreased visual acuity in both eyes with headache and tinnitus. Fundoscopic findings showed bilateral annular choroidal detachment but no evidence of exudative retinal detachment. The same result was obtained on remission. (Case 3) A 53-year-old female presented with decreased visual acuity in both eyes with headache and tinnitus. Fundoscopic findings showed severe choroidal folds instead of exudative retinal detachment, which was observed in 2 other remissive cases. CONCLUSIONS: We report 3 cases of atypical Harada's disease that did not present with bilateral exudative retinal detachment. Ophthalmologists should know that Harada's disease can exhibit diverse clinical courses.
Key Words: Atypical Harada's disease;Choroidal detachment;Chorioretinal fold;Unilateral
