Susac's syndrome: the value of fundus fluorescein angiography.
BMJ Case Rep 2014; 2014BC

Abstract

A 19-year-old woman presented with a 4-week history of headache, ataxia, vertigo, confusion, intermittent blurred vision in the right eye and intermittent hearing loss. MRI revealed white matter lesions and 'pepper pot' lesions of the corpus callosum. The cerebrospinal fluid had raised protein and lymphocytes. Fundal examination revealed multiple peripheral arterial occlusions in the both eyes confirmed with fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA). A diagnosis of Susac's syndrome was made. The patient was initially treated with steroids, followed by azathioprine and intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg). Clinical improvement was noted, associated with improvement of the retinal circulation on FFA.
