To present a case, who developed phacogenic nongranulomatous uveitis and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment 2 years after complicated cataract surgery.


The patient who was asymptomatic after a complicated cataract surgery for 2 years presented with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. During the preoperative evaluation he developed sudden onset of uveitis resembling endophthalmitis. Nucleus fragments were not seen preoperatively. Pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade was performed and nucleus fragments were removed. After pars plana vitrectomy had been done, anterior and posterior segment were quiescent.

Effectiveness / Safety:

Sudden onset of phacogenic uveitis can be seen even 2 years after complicated cataract surgery.
