We report a rare case of probable Vogt–Koyanagi–Harada (VKH) syndrome in a 10-year-old child who presented with visual acuity of only perception of light present in both eyes. The anterior segment examination showed cells, flare (4+), fine keratic precipitates over back of the cornea, posterior synechiae, posterior subcapsular cataract, and fundus showing hyperemic disc with blurred margins. B-scan showed shallow retinal detachment and choroidal thickening. Bilateral panuveitis with normal serological and systemic screening was favoring a diagnosis of probable VKH syndrome. The patient was treated with intravenous methylprednisolone followed by oral prednisolone. Visual acuity improved to 6/24 BE.
