Abstract PURPOSE: To determine the applicability of the international revised diagnostic criteria for Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease. METHODS: Retrospective study. Medical charts of 140 patients with the diagnosis of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, from the Uveitis Sector of the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), were revised and classified following the revised diagnostic criteria. RESULTS: Of the 140 patients, 12.85% fulfilled the criteria for complete disease, 29.28% incomplete disease, 28.57% probable Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease and 28.27% were considered not Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease. CONCLUSION: The authors consider that the international revised diagnostic criteria have good applicability and are very useful to help in the diagnosis of Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease.
