Helioid choroiditis is a distinct clinical entity initially described by Hong et al. (1997) in a series of six young, healthy patients with vision loss related to a solitary focus of choroiditis. The condition is characterized by a solitary, discrete elevated yellow-white active focus of choroiditis. During the acute phase, the lesions have overlying neurosensory retinal detachment and in some cases subretinal hemorrhage. All lesions in this series showed minimal growth with subsequent gradual resolution of the inflammation and subretinal fluid.
