Abstract

Phacolytic glaucoma normally presents with clinical features of eye pain and redness, anterior chamber inflammation, and increased intraocular pressure. This report is of a patient with phacolytic glaucoma, which presented as a total white hypopyon in a non-inflamed eye. Other possible causes of pseudohypopyon in this age group such as endogenous endophthalmitis or Masquerade syndrome were excluded before the patient underwent extracapsular cataract extraction with secondary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. She achieved satisfactory visual acuity postoperatively.
