Abstract

Purpose: To report two cases of retinal vasculitis associated with CREST syndrome, a novel ocular finding. Observations: We report two cases of patients with CREST syndrome with ocular inflammatory disease. Patient 1 presented with a right unilateral panuveitis with extensive retinal vasculitis and evidence of prior uveitis in the contralateral eye. Patient 2 presented with a left branch retinal artery occlusion and bilateral retinal vasculitis. Both patients underwent treatment with prednisone and mycophenolate motefil. Conclusions and importance: Retinal vasculitis has not been previously reported in CREST syndrome. Prompt therapy with immunomodulatory therapy can potentially minimize ocular morbidity.
