Abstract

The authors describe a 6-year-old child, with a history of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, who presented with leukemic infiltration of the anterior segment of one eye mimicking anterior uveitis. After tissue diagnosis, administration of radiation therapy to the affected eye resulted in dramatic improvement of the condition. Involvement of the iris and anterior chamber is a recognized but unusual manifestation of leukemia. In the absence of systemic relapse, local radiation therapy without chemotherapy is highly effective, although the prognosis in these patients may be guarded.
