• A patient with Harada's syndrome had as an initial symptom a transient shallow anterior chamber with increased intraocular pressure. All 11 reported cases of this syndrome have described this same initial manifestation. The cause of the transient shallow anterior chamber may be transient swelling of the ciliary body secondary to the severe choroiditis.
