Purpose:

To describe an unusual presentation of Masquerade Syndrome in the form of bilateral hypopyon in a two month old female.

Setting:

University of Santo Tomas Hospital Espana, Manila, Philippines

Methods:

This is a retrospective and descriptive case report based on clinical records, laboratory and diagnostic examinations.

Results:

We report an atypical presentation of a presumed case of Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia. Visual acuity at this time was (+) reaction to bright light on both eyes. External eye examination showed slight proptosis of both eyes with a <0.5 mm hypopyon on the right eye, and an approximately 1.5mm hypopyon on the left eye. B scan showed minimal choroiditis of both eyes. Other diagnostic examinations were done including CBC which showed hemoglobin of 80 (low), WBC of 10(low) platelet of 35 (low). Peripheral smear showed the presence of 10% atypical mononuclear blast cells.

A high index of suspicion is warranted when clinicians are presented which such atypical clinical presentations.
