Abstract

Objective To evaluate the changes in choroidal thickness (CT) at 13 different points between “active,” “remission,” and “end-stage” phase of Behcet's panuveitis and compare this with the age, sex, and spherical equivalent matched healthy controls using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography. Design Prospective study. Participants Eighty-five eyes of 45 patients with Behcet's panuveitis (19 eyes with active phase, 48 eyes with remission phase, and 18 eyes with end-stage phase) and 84 eyes of 42 controls were enrolled in this study. Methods CT measurements were obtained beneath the fovea and at 500-µm intervals for 3 mm nasal and temporal to the centre of the fovea. Correlation analyses were calculated to assess the relationship of the CT with age and disease duration. Results At all 13 measurement points, CT was significantly thinnest in end-stage-phase eyes and thickest in active-phase eyes (p < 0.01). CT was thicker in remission-phase eyes compared with control eyes at foveal and perifoveal points, but the trend was not statistically significant. The mean CT at each of the 13 measured points showed a negative correlation with age and disease duration (p < 0.01). Conclusions Submacular CT, as measured by enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography, was significantly reduced in eyes with Behcet's panuveitis in the end-stage phase and increased in those in the active phase.
