ACUTE ANTERIOR UVEITIS

SEPTEMBER 2017 - VOL.13 | MEDICAL IMAGES

A 36-year old female presents with acute (recurrent) anterior uveitis in the right eye, HLA-B27 positive. She has a history of bilateral recurrent non-granulomatous uveitis attacks since 2011, but she has no extraocular manifestation of autoimmune disease. She has typical signs of acute anterior uveitis (the ciliary conjunctival injection, hypopyon level and fibrin reaction at pupillary area as in Fig. A.). Fig. B shows signs of previous uveitic attack in the same eye as Fig. A (residual fibrin on the anterior lens surface is visible on slit lamp examination after pupillary dilatation). This case requires treatment of combined periocular steroids injection and topical steroids plus cycloplegics to control the inflammation.
