Vasculitis is one of the important signs of uveitis caused by sarcoidosis. The major features of sarcoid vasculitis are nodular/segmental periphlebitis, candle wax drippings, and macroaneurysm in an inflamed eye. Arteritis is less common in sarcoidosis. Retinal nonperfusion area and neovascularization sometimes develops secondary to sarcoid vasculitis, and focal laser photocoagulation is needed in such cases after sufficient anti-inflammatory treatment is done.
