Purpose: To report a case of "chronic iridocyclitis in young girls" treated by various therapeutic modalities. Case = A 6-year-old girl presented with band keratopathy, anterior uveitis with posterior synechia, and complicated cataract in her right eye. She received therapeutic laser keratectomy and phacoemulsification-aspiration followed by intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Cyclitic membrane was detected during surgery. Vitrectomy with extraction of IOL was performed for postoperative ocular hypotony and persistent intraocular inflammation. She received another vitrectomy, trabeculectomy and peroral cyclosporine for raised intraocular pressure (IOP) and proliferative membrane in the posterior fundus. These procedures were followed by regression of intraocular inflammation and control of IOP Conclusions: Vitrectomy with peroral cyclosporine was effective in a case of "chronic iridocyclitis in young girls".
