Abstract
Case report

A 61-year-old pseudophakic male with recurrent blurred vision episodes associated with uveitis, hyphema, glaucoma and vitreous hemorrhage. Iris transillumination defects and apposition of the optic and iris were found. The patient was diagnosed with uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema (UGH) syndrome.

Discussion

Mechanical irritation of the iris is a consequence of intraocular lens malposition and causes UGH syndrome. Occasionally it is associated with vitreous hemorrhage. Lens malposition is detected by optical coherence tomography and/or ultrasound biomicroscopy.

Keywords:
Uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome
Pigment dispersion syndrome
Uveitis
Hyphema
Glaucoma
Vitreous hemorrhage
Resumen
Caso clínico

Varón de 61 años seudofaco, con episodios recurrentes de visión borrosa asociados a uveítis, hipema, glaucoma y hemorragia vítrea. Se objetivaron defectos de transiluminación del iris y contacto entre la óptica de la lente y el iris siendo diagnosticado de síndrome de uveítis-glaucoma-hipema (UGH).

Discusión

La irritación mecánica del iris consecuencia del mal posicionamiento de la lente intraocular origina el síndrome de UGH. Ocasionalmente se asocia a hemorragia vítrea. La malposición de la lente se confirma mediante tomografía de coherencia óptica y/o biomicroscopía ultrasónica.
