Kyrieleis Plaques

Kyrieleis plaques are also referred to as “Kyrieleis vasculitis”, “Kyrieleis arteriolitis”, “nodular periarteritis”, “segmental retinal periarteritis” or “segmental retinal arteritis” in the literature.

Kyrieleis plaques represent a rare fundus examination finding, first described in an eye with presumed tuberculous uveitis by Werner Kyrieleis, in 1933. They appear as multiple, segmental yellowish-white lesions, affecting retinal arterial branches in a beaded pattern usually adjacent to active inflammation.
