    Abstract

    A 29-year-old-man with a 7-year history of bilateral chronic uveitis developed subretinal neovascularisation in the macular area of his right eye. There was a history suggesting sarcoidosis. Long-term therapy with systemic corticosteroids decreased the activity of the uveitis, and the subretinal neovascularisation changed into a cystic scar. After the systemic corticosteroids were discontinued there was a recurrence of the uveitis but not of the subretinal neovascularisation.
