A 1-YEAR-OLD CHILD had a 2-day history of redness of the right eye and a 1-day history of fever. There was no report of trauma to the eye, nor was there a history of upper respiratory tract infection, tonsillitis, otitis media, or other infection. The medical and family histories were unremarkable. On physical examination, mild periorbital swelling and hyperemia of the conjunctiva of the right eye were present (Figure 1 and Figure 2). There was no purulent discharge from the eye. A slitlamp examination disclosed evidence of uveitis and presence of a hypopyon. The left eye did not appear to be involved.
