Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is a rare multiorgan disorder that affects the melanocytes of the eyes, skin, inner ear, and meninges. It is more common in women and in patients 30 to 50 years of age; it is rarely seen in children. We report a 14-year-old boy who meets the criteria for complete VKH disease.
