A 6-year-old girl presented with a grayish-white hypopyon and whitish iris infiltration in her left eye [Figure 1]a. She was a diagnosed case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated 2 years ago. Visual acuity was 6/36 and IOP was 34 mmHg. Fundus was normal. Aspiration cytology from aqueous was suggestive of leukemia [Figure 1]b. A clinical diagnosis of pseudohypopyon was made. She was re-started on chemotherapy. However, she expired within few weeks.

  Conclusion Top


Hypopyon is an uncommon manifestation of ALL. Occurrence of uveitis in a patient of ALL is most likely to be a sign of central nervous system involvement.
