A 29-year-old white woman with acute recurrent nongranulomatous iridocyclitis of undetermined cause was treated with a retrobulbar injection of depocorticosteroid (Kenalog) through the inferior eyelid. This resulted in rapid clearing of the uveitis, but she developed subcutaneous and inferior orbital fat atrophy. This atrophy persisted during the 1 1/2 years of observation.
