Abstract

Purpose:To report a case of anterior uveitis associated with high-dose cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) treatment. Design:Observational case report. Methods:A 14-year-old girl was seen for pain, redness, and photophobia shortly after finishing a cycle of high-dose Ara-C. Results:Portable slit-lamp examination revealed bilateral diffuse fine keratic precipitates, indicative of a nongranulomatous anterior uveitis. This was treated successfully with a course of topical prednisolone acetate 1%. Conclusions:Ophthalmologists who are asked to evaluate patients on high-dose Ara-C for a "red eye" should consider anterior uveitis as a potential diagnosis.
