Abstract

Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema (UGH) syndrome is characterized by episodes of anterior chamber inflammation, elevated intraocular pressure and hyphema. It is caused by a mechanical chafing of the iris or ciliary body typically by a malpositioned intraocular lens. We present a rare case of UGH syndrome related to the insertion of a Hydrus Microstent. Because of the increased number of microinvasive glaucoma surgeries being performed and a reduction of UGH syndrome patients related to the insertion of intraocular lenses, it is an important diagnosis to consider in patients with recurrent postoperative inflammation.
