Presumed Fuchs' uveitis syndrome – a case report and review of literature

JFA Owoeye, BJ Adekoya


Fuchs' uveitis syndrome (FUS) is an uncommon form of uveitis. A case of presumed FUS seen in a patient at the eye clinic of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Ilorin, Nigeria is presented. An update on FUS is provided. A high index of suspicion is advocated for cases of asymptomatic, unilateral uveitis associated with cataract. Cataract surgery in these types of patients is not associated with a fulminant post-operative inflammation common with other forms of uveitis.
