Vogt-Koyanagi syndrome is characterized by uveitis, alopecia, poliosis, dysacousia and vitiligo. It is a rare syndrome of unknown cause. Though initial cases reported were among the Japanese, no race seems to be spared and there have been occasional case reports from all over the world. Most cases occur in the third and fourth decades of life and males and females are equally affected. A case recently seen by us is being reported.
