Corneal stromal pseudohypopyon in a pseudophakic patient

A Agrawal, VB Pratap, S Suman, VK Pal


Background: Corneal stromal pseudohypopyon is a rare entity.

Case: A 65-year-old female developed a suture abscess in her pseudophakic right eye, three years after conventional extra-capsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. Pus from the suture abscess tracked down the corneal stromal layers and formed a pus level leading to the appearance of a corneal intra-stromal pseudo-hypopyon.

Conclusion:This case is unique due to its unusual clinical presentation and highlights the fact that corneal pseudohypopyon may occur without any associated anterior chamber hypopyon or Descemet’s detachment.
