Vogt Koyanagi Harada disease (VKH) is a multisystem disorder principally affecting pigmented tissues in the ocular, auditory, integumentary and central nervous system. VKH is characterized by bilateral, chronic, diffuse granulomatous uveitis accompanied by characteristic neurological, auditory and integumentary features. Patients are typically 20-50 years old and have no history of surgical or accidental ocular trauma. We report a 15 year old boy with incomplete VKH on immunosuppression. Although rare, VKH should be considered in a teenager with bilateral panuveitis and vitiligo.
