Bilateral choroidal detachment after cord blood stem cell transplantation in an adult patient with acute myeloid leukemia
We report on bilateral choroidal detachment after a cord blood stem cell transplantation procedure. A 52-year-old woman had graft-versus-host disease 49 days after CBSCT for acute myeloid leukemia. She developed bilateral conjunctival chemosis and choroidal detachment 66 days after CBSCT. The annular choroidal detachment gradually increased in both eyes, with no improvement noted over the following month. At 106 days after CBSCT, the patient died from multiple organ failure. Graft-versus-host disease can be associated with bilateral choroidal detachment after CBSCT.
