Abstract

MT is a 52-year-old man who presented with complaints of “spots” in his vision and generalized blurring. His past medical history was unremarkable. Examination of the eye documented visual acuity of 20/20 in the right eye and 20/70 in his left eye. No keratoprecipitates were noted on the corneal endothelial surface and the anterior chamber was clear. The vitreous was hazy with larger yellowish cells floating within it. The diagnosis of pars planitis with intermediate uveitis was made and he was treated with topical and oral steroids. The process was not changed after 2 weeks of treatment, so an injection of subtenon’s triamcinolone was given. He was seen in another 2 weeks with no improvement.
