A 54-year-old male sustained ocular trauma with a projectile. Examination of the right eye revealed an intraocular foreign body (IOFB) adjacent to the optic nerve head, vitritis, vitreous hemorrhage, and translucent perivascular sheathing of the retinal vessels in all quadrants suggesting frosted branch angiitis (FBA). The patient underwent vitrectomy with removal of the IOFB and silicone oil tamponade under steroid cover. With continued use of systemic and topical steroids after surgery, complete resolution of FBA and improvement in vision were noted in a week. Prompt resolution of FBA after IOFB removal points toward a strong association between the presence of IOFB and FBA.
