Abstract

We report a case of hypopyon uveitis referred as inflammatory disease nonresponsive to corticosteroids. A detailed history revealed that the patient had been treated previously for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Anterior chamber tap was consistent with recurrence of ALL. A review of pseudouveitis in the pediatric population is also presented.
