A Clinical Case from the Archives : 21/12/2006

This cat presents with a brown deposit in its anterior chamber. It looks as if it might be in the cornea here, like a corneal sequestrum doesn’t it, but believe me it was lying in the aqueous behind the cornea. What is it? How might it have got there?

Here’s a slightly burred picture of the same thing in the other eye. Its fibrin, which might have come from an anterior uveitis, but the eye is quiet and not inflamed at all. The cat was however hypertensive and this fibrin clot has probably come from leaky iris vesels….not that I can find a reference to this happening in the literature!
