Introduction: Birdshot chorioretinopathy (BCR) is a bilateral and recurrent posterior uveitis with an uncertain natural history and visual prognosis. Currently, there is no consensus on the best treatment option and its total duration. Clinical Cases: We present a series of three clinical cases of patients with BCR diagnosed in different stages of the disease, which demonstrates the clinical spectrum of this pathology and their treatment with different immunomodulatory drugs. Conclusion: As shown in our series of cases, the early use of immunomodulatory drugs is recommended with a close monitoring and individualized treatment to achieve the best anatomical and functional results.
