Abstract

A 60-year-old Asian man presented with left rubeotic glauma secondary to a central retinal vein occlusion. He was successfully treated with laser diode cyclophotocoagulation of the ciliary body. Nine months later he developed right progressive visual loss, headache, corneal oedema, anterior chamber cells, flare, mutton fat keratic precipitates, a swollen disc, and a minimal inferior visual field defect. A diagnosis of sympathetic ophthalmia was made, which was confirmed by characteristic findings seen on fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography.
