Abstract Cogan's syndrome is characterized by noninfectious, interstitial keratitis combined with a vestibulo-auditory deficit. Despite therapy with corticosteroids in combination with immunosuppressive agents, relapses occurred in two subjects and the clinical course suggested a progression of the disease. Treatment with anti-TNF-alpha was started leading to a rapid and sustained clinical remission for over 2 respectively 3 years.
