1/4. Bilateral spontaneous hyphema with uveitis in a young girl.

    A healthy 5-year-old girl presented with bilateral hyphema as an initial symptom of uveitis. The ocular findings and the patient's age suggested that the uveitis was due to juvenile rheumatic arthritis or chronic iridocyclitis.

2/4. Unusual presentation of Amsler's sign in Fuchs' heterochromic uveitis.

    hyphema occurring after ocular paracentesis has been described as a classic feature of Fuchs' heterochromic uveitis (FHU) (Amsler's sign). We describe a case of hyphema occurring after peribulbar anesthesia in a patient with FHU. The bleeding occurred before the surgery began. Although the occurrence of this phenomenon does not preclude successful surgical outcomes, topical anesthesia may lower the risk preoperatively.

3/4. Juvenile xanthogranuloma of the iris in an adult.

    Juvenile xanthogranuloma is a self-limited skin disorder of young children that uncommonly affects the eye. Juvenile xanthogranuloma has been described in adults, but reported intraocular involvement is extremely rare. We report a case of juvenile xanthogranuloma diagnosed in a 25-year-old man who was seen with nontraumatic hyphema and iridocyclitis. diagnosis was made from a biopsy specimen obtained from a suspicious skin lesion. Topical and systemic steroids, radiation therapy, and finally immunosupression were required to eliminate the iris tumor clinically and resolve the patient's recurrent symptoms.

4/4. hyphema after peribulbar anesthesia for cataract surgery in Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis.

    PURPOSE: To describe an unusual ocular sign in one patient with Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis at cataract surgery. methods: We describe a patient with Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis and cataract who developed a 1 mm hyphema observed two minutes after peribulbar anesthesia for cataract surgery. RESULTS: The patient was found to have an equivalent of the Amsler-Verrey sign. It appeared after peribulbar anesthesia and before any instrument touched the globe. It did not interfere with surgery and disappeared completely by day 2. CONCLUSION: The appearance of a hyphema after peribulbar anesthesia in Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis is an unusual sign that may have the same pathophysiology as the Amsler-Verrey sign.
