Clinical case: A 37 year old female with histologically proven Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease is presented. She developed panuveitis, vasculitis and subretinal macular infiltrate, probably as a recurrence of the disease. Immunosuppressive treatment (methotrexate) was initiated in the absence of response to systemic steroid therapy and threat to vision owing to macular involvement. Discussion: Ophthalmic complications of Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease are unusual. We discuss differential diagnosis and emphasize the aggresiveness of our case.
