Purpose: To describe a rare case of sympathetic ophthalmia with subretinal hypopyon. Methods: Observational case report. Results: A 41-year-old man was diagnosed with sympathetic ophthalmia in his left eye. Oral prednisone was started. Three days later, he developed an inferior exudative retinal detachment with an underlying hypopyon. The exudative retinal detachment and hypopyon resolved completely within 48 hours. Conclusions: A subretinal hypopyon in sympathetic ophthalmia is a rare clinical… 
Sympathetic ophthalmia: Report of a case series and comprehensive review of the literature
TLDR
Ocular therapies, including both penetrating ocular therapy and non-penetrating ocular intervention, have become increasingly prevalent risk factors for SO, and the latent period has increased compared to past reports.
Imaging for Sympathetic Ophthalmia: Impact on the Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
Sympathetic ophthalmia is a rare, bilateral, granulomatous uveitis that can present after ocular trauma or surgical interventions such as pars plana vitrectomy and cataract extraction that can range from 2 weeks to 50 years after trauma.

TLDR
The appearance and the shifting of the subretinal infiltrate seen in this patient support an inflammatory etiology of UAIM.

TLDR
Peter's anomaly was shallow, and the central iris was attached to the periphery of the corneal opacity, and there was no evidence of chromosomal abnormality of them.
Ophthalmic Images: Subretinal Hypopyon in Acute Retinal Necrosis
TLDR
OCT showed dramatic thinning of the retina with loss of the inner, highly reflective layer corresponding to the histopathologic changes described, and Optical coherence tomography is a useful noninvasive test in patients with unexplained visual loss and may provide an objective measure of retinal damage in these patients.
