Abstract
It is well known that the development of sympathetic ophthalmia is almost always secondary to an accidental or surgical penetrating wound of the eye. This presented case was a 28 year old male who injured his left eye with a scleral laceration with prolapse of uveal tissue and developed sympathetic ophthalmia after 8 weeks. The exciting eye (left) was enucleated and showed typical findings of sympathetic ophthalmia. The patient has done well on steroids and whenever the steroids was diminished or discontinued, there was aggrevation of inflammation. The visual result was relatively favorable.
