A patient had Fuchs heterochromic iridocyclitis of approximately 17 years' duration. Histologically, keratic precipitates, iris atrophy, rubeosis iridis, discontinuous rubeosis of the anterior chamber angle, a chronic nongranulomatous iridocyclitis, and trabeculitis were noted. The cause of the glaucoma probably is a combination of rubeosis of the anterior chamber angle and trabeculitis.
