Abstract
Clinical case

A young woman was referred to our offices with impairment of visual acuity after she received a third tattoo on her arm. Systemic medical and laboratory work-up were performed in order to exclude an infectious agent or inflammatory disease. A yellowish juxtafoveal lesion in left eye along with a plaque-like outer retinal disruption and focal pigmentary defects was assessed using multi-modal diagnostic imaging.

Discussion

Ophthalmologists treating uveitis should consider this uncommon association and question patients regarding tattoos and tattoo inflammation given the rise of subjects undergoing artistic tattooing.

Keywords:
Uveitis
Tattoo
Retinochoroiditis
Multifocal choroiditis
Resumen
Caso clínico

Una joven mujer fue referida por compromiso de la agudeza visual después de recibir un tercer tatuaje en su brazo. Se realizó evaluación sistémica y de laboratorio para excluir agentes infecciosos o enfermedad inflamatoria. Una lesión amarillenta yuxtafoveal junto con disrupción de la retina externa de tipo placoide y defectos pigmentarios focales fueron evaluados con imágenes multimodales.

Discusión

Los oftalmólogos que tratan uveítis deben considerar esta asociación poco común y preguntar a sus pacientes acerca de tatuajes e inflamación de estos, dado el número creciente de sujetos con tatuajes artísticos.
