A Clinical Case from the Archives : 07/09/2005

What lesions do you see in this 13 year old dog’s eye? Is the cataract (there’s a giveaway for a start!) suitable for surgery do you think?

There is a cataract for sure but the key feature to note here are the keratic precipitates – inflammatory cells from the aqueous humour accumulating on the posterior face of the cornea. There is a pretty serious inflammatory reaction here which would not auger well for a successful cataract surgery.
