Abstract

A case of Cogan's syndrome is reported which shows various unusual characteristics; apart from the classic presence of nonsyphilitic interstitial keratitis and vestibulo-auditory dysfunction, the patient showed diffuse involvement of the vascular apparatus, secondary platelet activation and derangement of the immunocompetent system. Treatment of Cogan's syndrome is discussed, in particular the possibility of early vascular surgery and prolonged treatment with immunosuppressive and antiaggregant drugs together with the well-known corticosteroids, with the aim of improvement of the disease.
