Objective:  To describe plateau iris syndrome associated with multiple neuroepithelial cysts of the pars plicata.

Methods:  Case reports of 3 patients with plateau iris syndrome who were found to have multiple bilateral ciliary body cysts on ultrasound biomicroscopic examination.

Results:  Ultrasound biomicroscopy revealed classic features of plateau iris syndrome in each patient but also showed multiple neuroepithelial cysts of the ciliary body in each eye.

Conclusion:  Plateau iris syndrome may be associated with multiple ciliary body cysts.
