My husband was recently diagnosed with AZOOR- does anyone have any experience with this condition? What were your symptoms, what treatments did/do you receive, where are you located, who are your doctors? My husband originally was diagnosed with MEWDs 3 years ago. He would have MEWDs like episodes that would resolve within 6 weeks. About 2 years ago he also developed a blind spot in his central vision that has never gone away. Now one has developed in his left eye. Around the original MEWDs episode he also developed an odd skin rash that was a type of lichen (?) and a prostrate infection (Epididymitis). We are wondering if there is a connection and if that would influence the treatment. We are in NYC. Any advice or shared experience with Azoor is welcomed. Thank you.

  • Please share your progress. I too am diagnosed. Almost no VF in right eye and now starting oral prednisone. No relief yet. What drug therapy have you tried and did you experience any relief? I'm in Chicago.
