A white man in his mid to late forties with a history of Huntington disease presented with acute painful left eye vision loss. He was diagnosed with acute angle-closure glaucoma secondary to iris neovascularization and underwent diode cyclophotocoagulation after combination topical and systemic medical treatment failed. Workup included ultrasonography examination owing to unsuccessful left fundus visualization. This revealed a hyperechoic lesion within the vitreous, consistent with a Cloquet canal hematoma (Figure, A). Magnetic resonance imaging of the orbit also confirmed the intravitreal hyperintense lesion located anterior to the optic nerve (Figure, B).
