The Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome is a bilateral uveitis with serous detachments and signs of systemic disease and meningeal irritation.1

We describe a patient in whom fluorescein angiographic findings were characteristic of Harada disease, without systemic disorders (Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada-type syndrome), and whose condition was evaluated also by indocyanine green angiography (ICGA).2,3

A fluorescein angiogram showed rounded subretinal hypofluorescent areas at
