To report a case of spontaneous fluocinolone acetonide (Retisert) implant dislocation and migration into the anterior chamber.Methods:
Retrospective case report.Patients:
One patient with sympathetic ophthalmia uveitis was well controlled by fluocinolone acetonide implants.Results:
The fluocinolone acetonide implant spontaneously migrated into the anterior chamber causing corneal edema and anterior chamber reaction. The implant was subsequently successfully removed through a temporal corneal wound.Conclusion:
Clinicians should be aware of the spontaneous dislocation and migration of an intact fluocinolone implant as a potential surgical complication, particularly in pseudophakic eyes with iridectomy.
