The Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome (VKH) is a bilateral, severe granulomatous uveitis associated with serous retinal detachment, papillary edema and extra-ocular manifestations. Uveitis in children accounts for 5 to 10% of all uveitis cases; the VKH is rarely described in the children population. The diagnosis of this condition can be very challenging; especially if clinical diagnosis criteria are not being met at the onset of this affection. The visual prognosis is mostly good if the treatment is early started.
