Abstract Details


The objective of this paper is to present clinical features in uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome


Ophthalmology Service, University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova, Lleida, Spain


Clinical case report. A 55-year-old man complained from blurred vision on the left eye. He had a past medical history of bilateral phacoemulsification and left recurrent hypertensive anterior uveitis diagnosed as glaucomatocyclitic crisis controlled with topical corticosteroids and anti-glaucomatous drops


His best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in right eye (RE) and 20/40 in left eye (LE), with an intraocular pressure of 10 and 12 mmHg respectively. Relevant features on examination included inflammatory reaction in the anterior chamber and hematic cells at the anterior and posterior portion of an inferiorly subluxated intraocular lens with pseudophakodonesis, iris atrophy and dense pigment in the trabecular meshwork at the LE. Intraocular lens relocation and medical treatment were required.


The Uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome is a rare triad that may occur after extracapsular cataract extraction with implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens. We presented a case report of a patient who presented this syndrome after a phacoemulsification related to pseudophakodonesis
