    granulomatous uveitis
    Granulomatous uveitis is found in many inflammatory diseases, and is generally characterized by a predominant histiocytic infiltrate forming a “wall” (granuloma) around a pathogen or foreign body. This is an example of granulomatous uveitis. The eye is aphakic; the uveal track is thickened; and a granuloma is present and attached to the endothelium of the cornea (arrow). The anterior chamber is filled with a hazy material (arrowhead). The vitreous is fibrotic and tractional bands are also present (*).
