PURPOSE: To describe two men with birdshot retinochoroidopathy whose severe subjective visual symptoms were controlled by long-term use of low- dose oral corticosteroid therapy. METHOD: Chart review. RESULTS: Vision improved subjectively in both men after initial treatment with oral prednisone (1 mg/kg/day) and remained stable while taking 5 mg daily or less of prednisone for periods of 54 and 81 months. CONCLUSION: Some patients with birdshot retinochoroidopathy do well with no long-term therapy or only low- dose oral corticosteroids as long-term therapy.
