Treatment of diffuse subretinal fibrosis uveitis with rituximab


Diffuse subretinal fibrosis uveitis (DUS) syndrome is a rare form of granulomatous multifocal choroiditis (MFC) characterised by enlarging areas of subretinal fibrosis (SRF) which coalesce with subsequent macular involvement and visual loss. First described by Palestine, DUS carries a poor visual prognosis despite use of high-dose corticosteroids and systemic immunosuppression. We report two cases of bilateral DUS successfully treated with rituximab. We believe given the B-cell predominance in the underlying pathogenesis of the disease, rituximab should be considered first line in the management of this potentially devastating disease.
