Breve resumo:
An 18-year-old boy presented to our emergency department with a 1-month history of a painful left eye, photophobia, and progressive blurring of vision. His past ocular history included a penetrating left globe injury, surgically repaired 1 year before. Biomicroscopy revealed a scar in the inferior cornea and a huge epithelial iris cyst, reaching the visual axis (Panel A). BCVA of the left eye was 20/320, and intraocular pressure was 20 mmHg. Further investigation, namely ultrasound biomicroscopy (Panel B), and anterior segment-OCT (not shown) supported this diagnosis. Nd: YAG laser cystotomy was performed to rupture the cyst wall and drain its fluid content. Immediate shrinkage of the cyst was seen, but additional follow-up is required to rule out the development of procedure-related complications and cyst recurrence. With the evolution of surgical techniques, posttraumatic iris cysts have become rare entities. Nevertheless, its recognition and management are mandatory for any ophthalmologist.​
