Both Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) develop serous retinal detachment, and since recently, it has been well known that in both diseases, the thick choroid can be seen on optical coherence tomography (OCT). However, the pathogenesis of each disease is totally different; VKH is an inflammatory disease affecting melanocytes, while CSC is a disorder of choroidal circulation. Steroids treat VKH but worsen CSC; therefore, it is important to distinguish these diseases.

This article reports a case of VKH disease in which recurred serous retinal detachment was treated successfully with steroids, but the last recurrence did not respond to the steroids and angiographic findings suggested CSC.
