Careful questioning of the patient and detailed examination of the eye for other signs is necessary to guide the differential diagnosis and relevant investigations.

Steroid therapy, which lead to significant remission of symptoms, if missed diagnosis, it can have serious sequel for the patient, a rational approach based on the understanding of the causes of hypopyon uveitis is imperative.
